Karl and I saw hay bales in fields yesterday, and I remembered this poem from June 2013 on my site, Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin.
lights on the water
perhaps a fisherman
with old and new friends
in my mind for days
hay bales in the fields
not realizing before
how it grows . . .
I also recall Woodslawn Farm, the Purington family website from Colrain, MA. Carol Purington and I have been corresponding for many years. She also has a poetry page at the family website.
Three Tanka By Carol Purington is a post on this site, from August 2012.
