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.
I can never get enough of it.
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.
