Back 40: Girlwise I Viewed the Prairie

Tami Haaland  
June 2015

Beige blue horizon and the thrill of sunset 
violet velvet magenta not just for seconds 
but minutes coming and then receding 
from its own brilliant apex 
and I hoped to have it all, the arrival, 
the going, but mostly I wanted to keep 
the fury of color in a full sky 
and wherever I stood I was center 
reaching out to wrap my eyes 
in the circumference of the racing earth.
