A View That’s Worth Marveling At

This is the view peering north through trees toward a circling, ridge-lined valley, a crater ridge attributed to god’s own thumb. In its concavity, slopes widen, cradling farms, red barns, white homes, tall trees planted to break harsh winds. The sky is blue, clouds blending and wispy. Valley grass is vibrant; where soft clouds hover, darker. The ridges, as there are two parallel layers in our immediate view, recede in light, losing color to distance, hazier and more blue. A road dangles between homes and farms. Yellow fields and red-tan dirt lie in bands across the verdant valley’s floor.
