Back 40: Girlwise I Viewed the Prairie

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.
