Vast Prairie Puja

Uncle leads
past antiquated
I trail behind, step-in-step,
wind baths my face
sparrows whistling,
to the farthest, littlest evergreen
shelter-belt pivot.
Pulls grass,
gives attention,
says nothing.
Our offer complete, we turn
back from the vulnerable
edge of the farm,
where it drops off
into the vast prairie sky
