Iowa Sky

brilliant colors of an August sunset

purple, pink, orange, and yellow

highlighting the spiderweb pattern of a fence

dark rampart posts break up the blazing sun

black silhouettes of the knightly trees

bare branches, lances pointing towards the sky,

reaching through the brilliance

orange and yellow glow lights the cornfields on fire

tall soldiers standing at attention

tasseled tops against the barrage of color

the high Lord settles below the skyline

brilliance sinks into darkness

waiting to repeat the scene again
