Red Dirt Moments


So many red dirt moments
Are in my every day
A wonderful part of my life
It’s where I will always stay

Hollowed out in red dirt
Might be a refreshing pond
Surrounded by swishing trees
It’s a place where I’m so fond

I see a farmhouse nestled
Amongst the red dirt land
Wheat fields ripe and ready
So proud of the way it stands

A Mail Pouch barn is unique
Takes us back in time
Another Red Dirt Moment
Such precious ones I find

Summer roses pure and true
The colors so soft and sweet
I press one to my nose
Breathe in a luscious treat

So you see my life is perfect
I have nothing else I need
So many Red Dirt Moments
Am I lucky? Oh yes, indeed!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
