MY HUSBAND SCURRIED back to my mother’s house, told me to grab my camera and hurry.

And hasten we did. ¬†Between her house and the neighbors, along the grass alley a block. Turn west at my uncle and aunt’s house. Fast-walk another block.

Focus on the setting sun, the sky colored in layered shades of orange and yellow, pink and purple.

Oh, how I love the sunset on my beloved prairie in my hometown of Vesta, Minnesota.


Prairie sunset 55


I can never get enough of it.


Prairie sunset 56


This moment when day transitions into evening with beauty unequal on a land that stretches flat into forever.

Spectacular sunset, like poetry sweeping across the prairie sky.
