state natural area poems #17 a, b, c, & d: eagle centre prairie

a.

gold leaves

grey skies

from fullness only fullness

b.

moraine rocks circle oak-trunk

a petrine crown by moss-road

the prairie a fragile stability

c.

glacier’s gravel underfoot

earth bristles with leaf and stem

a whole universe of grass

d.

rough blazing star

a shard on hillside

aspens grove the ridge
