Florida Landscape Just Before Dawn/Mid-April


Fog hovers above the fields,

Shifting shapes while

Fingers of morning

Stretch the sky.

The spring, still new elsewhere

Has grown lazy and lush,

The undergrowth pushing

The kudzu higher, higher.

Westward-pointed shadows

Draw the eye east

To where the horizon

Gleams gold –

And in countless groves

Workers pick first oranges

And drop them into crates

Soaked with dew.

These are scary times. Prepare yourself to take a stand for what is right. God damn it, just be kind!

  1. I can just imagine it… You’ve painted a veritable picture. More than a picture, for I can feel the cool air and hear the morning sounds, and taste the sweet freshness, and see.


    1. Thank you so much. When I write, I try to create images with the words, so that you can forget the words, and carry away the picture. 🙂 I appreciate your comments.
