A fence in the wind,
bird calls, a distant tractor;
sounds of growing wheat

yep, most folks except us Kansans don't realize that is where the expression "talking heads" comes from. Stalks that talk with heads of bread.

Seriously, a very nice haiku, enjoyed muchly.

Whippoorwills willing
To sing in a new dawning
Quiet at twilight

~*~

Strung wire whistling
Herds turn to face southern skies
Tails turned to the cold

~*~

The wind is in moan
Cerulean skies darken
Snow is in the air

sounds like golden wheat to me, just ripe for the harvest...oh life is so sweetly defined, as are your thoughts, heart and poems.

Having been there, I've heard the sounds of wheat.
This is exceptional and with your permission, I'd like to print it out and keep it.

I think you have written many poems like this. It is like a miniature painting to me, and I'm glad I saw it.

I had a dream last night
you came to me on silver wings of light
I flew away with you in painted sky
Was it real
Is it what you see,touch or feel

I love the sound of wheat blowing in the soft winds..walking barefoot into the wheat fields...reading your poem brought these images to my mind....

Please don't leave us..a void would be in our hearts....same advice back to you that you gave me...

Whoa! "sounds of growing wheat"


I can almost hear the winds creating a rattling of the grains! Superb!!

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.
