Laura Ingalls Wilder started Writing at
Age 60

 

This Page is Dedicated to those whose lives of caretaking and careers prevented them from putting a hand to a brush, a pen to paper, a pencil to a sketchbook, but one day resolvd to take a class, put their hands and minds to something foreign and scary, and began producing ART in a different way than they had ever dared.

NEBRASKA NOSTALGIA

Mary LaFever 

July 16, 2014 at 10:15am

On the road we roam from home afar ~
From Dakota and Nebraska cities;
Patches of cows chewing grass are
Just square black spots on green fields.
Everywhere.

We brake for one lone antelope  
Coming too near the rental car bumper
Spot red shirts of persevering ranchers,
Cool shallow lakes begging for waders.     
Now.

Gray, silent deadwood town ‘photo ops’
Rolling grasses seem to seek bridges of past highways
Gollee geez, cottonwood trees in endless vistas
Fences, billboards, ~ oh dear, John Deere
Everywhere.

Cowboy hats in Badlands for a while
Clouds in that big blue sky ~ look, there,
Al’s Oasis, with more mile markers to make us smile;
Just ahead,  Wall Drug’s five cent coffee.   
Now.

On the road we roam from home afar ~
From Dakota and Nebraska cities;
Patches of cows chewing grass are
Just square black spots on green fields.
Everywhere.
