prairie daze

claiming our daze and our days on the prairie

sun party

we have enjoyed the sun
(though i prefer the cloudy)
while we wait for
genuine autumn
to stay

we were on the porch
in early afternoon sun
that was so piercing
so bright
does it hurt
or does it feel nice?
how can the sun be so hot
but the air cool enough
that we need blankets?

oh, the stuff of life and
the questions that i love
to simply answer:
i don’t know
amazing, eh?

by the way: these sweet red cups
were what food and coffee were served
on during my parents‘ flight to austria…
why don’t we all use little red cups
when the heavy metal carries us through the sky?
i don’t know that answer either…

    Life is too short not to use little red cups on airplanes.
