In this post you’ll find our layout a bit flip-flopped with the poem from Kate coming at the beginning instead of at the end. Enjoy her words and the pictures below!
The Hidden Badlands
Brown and brittle
rolls and undulates
right on through
With no warning
the earth collapses
of striped rock
marbled with a dusting
It seems a barren
Do not be deceived.
and chickadees chirp
their cheerful hellos.
A squirrel scampers
onto a lush green branch
Despite their name,
given by others,
they are a sustaining source
for generations of life.
