The State of Kansas

Considering Kansas
The Flint Hills of Kansas
Cities nearly swallowed up
by vast open spaces;
Farms and fields
framed by hills –

The Flint Hills of Kansas
rock-lined, prairie-covered hills --
adorned by cattle, rocks and solitary trees
as far as the eye can see.
Sunflowers, Kansas
Sunflowers smile from roadsides
through these great plains and grasslands
carpeting the center of the country.
