a lovely haiku Andrea, beautifully expressed. your words bring the golden rows of "summer corn" to life, swaying in the wind. Congratulations on your feature placement this week :-) lynnxx I too have wonderful memories of row upon row of corn. Every Sunday on our drive to see my grandparents, we saw acres of fields, first bare, then gradually saw them grow, knowing it wouldn't be long before harvest time and to have lots of butter on hand.

you enjoy Iowa. I've never been there. thats exciting for me.lol i know im a dork and it doesn't matter. also, i don't exactly feel romantic. there was a hidden message right at the end. i guess the romance was just natural. and really i think i need to stop sometimes. im a CRAZY teenage girl! -Always&Forever Lynn

congratulation Andrea. I may just google Iowa and have a browse. Living in the land down under I am in a different time zone from most of you on poetry soup. So it was an unexpected pleasure to see all the congratulatory messages this morning. ‘Blue Heaven” is my back yard when the Jacaranda drops its blossoms. thank you all...Margaret
