Flyover Country

International jets searing the sky.
The longest loop in the nation.
Passersby.

Species-rich earth.
Over a bed of loam.
Long grasses shoot up through.

Soft.
Flexible.
Parting as you walk in.

The first of my love letters to a landscape that will be lost in my lifetime. Intense heat, drought, and a forever flood will take it away. I love you my Gulf Coast prairie.
