The Times They Are A Changin'

Potatoes, onions and garlic are harvested.  First cropping of carrots and beets have turned into various summer mornings' juice.  Wild asters are blooming, golden rod, ragweed are winding down.  The yellow flowers of summer are turning to blooms of blues and purples.  The Perseid's prolific meteor shower from the comet Swift-Tuttle peaked last week and yesterday began the annual migration of the nighthawks.  Wild rice is filling out and will be ready to harvest within a couple of weeks.  Birch leaves are yellowing. Autumn will soon be upon us.

upstream from white sand beaches are hamlets, paddies and canyons bombshells unexploded, cratered land, cratered faces  mangled extremities...
