IMG_0675The flat Cajun prairie is never boring.  I’ve made that point several times over the years in posts with pictures of  fascinating landscape features that spread away in  earth poems—-poems that don’t need words.  This poetry that is so pure and natural that it transcends utterance.  And so such poetry arises from this floral burst surrounding a rustic farm structure near Mowata in rural Acadia Parish.  The story behind this sunflowery field is clarified when  the spectator can see what’s going on out of view in this picture.  A row of wooden bee hives on the other side of the barn reveals that this field is cultivated to promote  honey production.  So it’s a sweet earth poem.
