Indiana- A trip to nowhere

cornfields and soybeans
soybeans and cornfields
lined along the highways and byways
cardinals are fewer than crows
stealing the precious grains
before the harvest

"who's there?"
"who's there?"
"hooo saire?"
so they say

midwestern dreams of youth
how far can I run
no more cornfields
no more soybeans
no more crows

dedicated to artpredetor

To all of you hoosiers out there, the intent is not to offend, just to remember thoughts of my youth.


  1. this is great!

    thanks so much for participating!

    maybe i should post a page where people can leave their links with their participation in this project...hmmn will need to figure out the logistics of this since there has been several enthusiastic responses--but you've offered up the first poem! yay!

  2. Neat!

    I love me some country poetry!


  3. Ah, I went to college in Indiana this brought back my youth too. Thanks for posting it.
