K A N S A S

Kissed by the sun, sweet alfalfa in waving oceans that
Animals adore when dried into golden hay.
Noon breaks enjoying lunch under an ancient oak with
Songs from the wayward wind for company.
A tire swing hanging in wait for school to be out
Shares mem’ries of new born calves romping in the meadows.

Each wonderful season in Kansas holds an enchanted delight,
But heavenly scented lilacs in spring time let my soul take flight.

    Beautiful images of Kansas I see as I read your poem Connie. Oh to be able to travel through all of the States, just image how many poems one would have to write about ones travels, James :)

    Connie, I've never been to Kansas. But clearly you have. I have seen scenes like your "alfalfa in waving oceans" in places like the Dakotas and Indiana. And your imagery captures it so perfectly -- the crops whipped into waves by the unrestricted wind. And "A tire swing hanging"-- I have seen those too. You have painted a beautiful picture here, Connie, that mightily stimulates the mind. Hugs;) Sam

    connie, you were just fine doing the state only. This is just a homey look at "anywhere, Kansas" and you would have had to include a lot more lines if it were the city too!! (well you could have put the two letter state name and chosen a short named city. What IS your home city anyway?

    When I think of Kansas I think of three things. The Wizard of Oz. Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks. Kansas the rock band. I see there is much more. You describe a beautiful place. I will be awaiting my invitation to visit....Hugs Tim
