Poetry of Kansas Here & Now, There & Then

Propelled by the power of loss, we drive
until black streets crossing green lawns
give way to open space,

to a place where the freshly bruised cheek
of the sky at dusk, swollen and pink,
presses against the grasslands.  A scar
of lightning mars its face.

Awaiting the night’s arrival, we see
some movement in the field.  The shaking of grass

like lashes, fluttering. Something taking flight.

  1. Amy, your words, both delicate and vivid, paint the exquisite Kansas sunset, unfettered by surburbia. Thanks, Gail l. Sloan,
