Keep track of that late-winter,

snow-covered cornfield & judiciously-spread fresh manure

(judicious is key:

applied with care it won’t run off into a brook or well water)

Horned Larks (tundra-breeder) swoop in

& crawl over the frozen corn-stubble picking seeds from the spread.

It reminds me that good is gleaned from unlikely sources

& altho a scan of NYT, NPR, Al Jazeera, etc. sinks me into despair,

I will keep track.
