Spring’s Quilt

After an exhilarating day on the motorcycle I felt compelled to share the joy with you:

Spring‘s Quilt in Eastern Washington
 
Satin blue splashed with mares’ tails
Burlap fields of last year’s corn,
Host to this year’s calves and their mothers
Corduroy fields in shades of brown
Calico cherry blossoms in pink and white
Chenille dyed mottled greens
From deepest wheat to palest peas
Embroidered with metallic irrigation lines
And borders of waking poplar trees
Edged in gray ribbon roads
