by Leonard M Hawkes

this wide expanse--

the high broken line
of the far horizon--

the coarse, tenacious
patina of green--

exposed burnt ribs
of mother earth--

the waterless gray-azure
Of a Western sky--

or masterpiece.


Author's Note: Near Bunkerville, Nevada (with thoughts of Charles Friedrik Augustus Hoth)

I'm with Paul, and the title fits perfectly. A toast to the West!
