Along with help from my prairie dog, Lindy, I'd like to bring you an illustrated poem about the prairie where I now live.
First, my prairie dog, in case you haven't met her before.
All the above landscapes are part of "the lone prair-ee"
WHERE COYOTES HOWL, yes indeed, but
also WHERE THE DEER AND THE ANTELOPE PLAY
is a poem
in the fields
feet and fire in the sky
and canola fields streak stripes
across the landscape
of the things it takes...
to make a prairie
