Polk County - Mike Stinson

Polk County - Mike Stinson (Lincoln, Nebraska)

After supper

our family gathers in the yard space

between house and barn

to churn home made ice cream...

and though the old John Deere is out of sight

we can hear it's rhythmic chug

as it pumps artesian water

to a field of emerging corn...

and the wide Nebraska horizon

is lined with sunset orange

as I savor a scoop

of paradise
