Fields of Dreams
Lush fields and farmland surround the area in which I dwell. Just before and shortly after the harvest, the crops are at their utmost perfection.
Cornfields with stalks reaching over nine feet will soon be cut to satisfy the hunger of dairy cows and beef cattle throughout the winter.
Straw bales for bedding line up in the valleys, their gentle taupes and burnished hues reflected in the sunlight.
A lone sentry reaches several feet above the rest of the golden faces that droop heavy with seed. The sunflower field meets the horizon off in the distance against the bright blue sky.
Even the bees have come to enjoy the splendor and flight among the fields of dreams.
