Playing Seasonal Catch Up

Last fall he glanced out the
window of the plane and saw

the desert and wondered why
it was so brown. A week ago,

while driving through his
neighborhood in the upper

Midwest he wondered why
people continued to have

grass yards when they should
have desert landscaping to

save on the water. Sometimes he
has to push his brain like push-

ing a wheelbarrow with a soft
tire and full of mulch for

accenting the yard up a hill
into the present: desert brown

winter/upper Midwest grass green
spring/ desert dry/big lake big

water/desert blue sky/upper
Midwest gray skies bye-bye.
