April 26th, 2013

Mountain ranges are draped in veils of amber
resembling a large Christo installation
Shapes are revealed~ details obscured

We saw the reason for our altered views today
on our way south through the valley
farmers plowing the land
thick clouds of earth picked up by the wind

They are readying the fields
for their watery crop of rice ~grown in a desert state
already some fields are flooded reflecting the sun
soon tiny seedlings will rise above the surface
yet we've had no rain for weeks
