Road Trip (revisited)

between rumble-strips
and wild flowers -
two lane blacktop

mist from the hills -
where floodplain meets sky,
ripples blur the grey

Cannon, Whitewater,
Zumbro, Trout -
the place where the river widens

prayers for rain -
the church league's corn boil
won't be held this year

Route 66 -
a flyspecked whitewash
on the wayside rest

Sunday's summer sunset -
another small town
closes all its doors
