the big field

in a rainy year
carpet of green
royal purple of larkspur
plummy owl’s clover
Indian paintbrush
goldfields, poppies, fiddlenecks
cheery tidy tips

even the rocky slopes getting in on the show
larkspur red here
Indian warriors
Chinese houses
mule’s ears
blazing stars

shooting stars
already gone
