Haiku June 15, 2013 Country Lane

Ride to the country.

Urban sprawl, once rich farm fields,

Tobacco, corn, soy.

Art Prescription:  We took a day trip down to our very good friend’s “country house.” The old homestead is close to where my grandmother used to live, so a bit of a drive down country lane. What used to be rows and rows of crop is now rows and rows of houses and apartments. Once you are out far enough the familiar fields begin to stretch across the blue, cloudless sky. I love seeing meadows with ponds and horses, cows grazing, and old red barns!
