so much depends
a john deere
coated with delta
beside the grain
My 16 word poem is styled in the format of William Carlos Williams’ famous work The Red Wheelbarrow. Not familiar with it? click here—> The Red Wheelbarrow… (I would reprint it but don’t want to tangle with copyright issues…)
The Red Wheelbarrow is a simple poem, one long sentence broken down into couplets. Each phrase builds upon the next, each slows the reader down and raises questions.
What depends upon the wheelbarrow? the john deere tractor? So much— farming, livelihood, everything? So much.
I know. I’m being deep this morning. I get this way during harvest:)
