Rural Sounds - Poem by RIC BASTASA

mooing cows
barking dogs
flowing river
grassy plains
hushing winds
tall mountains
foggy hillsides
rising cliffs

a little brown boy
harvesting water apples
a little girl lifting her skirt
to catch them

father plowing a rain fed field
elder sister washing dirty clothes in the river
brother catching fish for breakfast
mother cooking rice

smoke rising from the chimney
reaching for the gods residing in the skies
