challenged us to write of WHEAT,
which took me to a magic place.

I walked the wheat field at dusk, azure skies dimming into evening.Perhaps I wandered farther than I thought, but it seemed a mist settled
over the golden grain and I had entered a Brigadoon, a lilt of
song and laughter far away. I turned to find the mist surrounded
what seemed an alternate universe, and my homeward path lay
beyond the mist. Becalmed, the cares of my world a distant memory
I sat amidst this paradise and counted the stars as they appeared one
by one, and the harvest moon rose high in the sky. I remember naught
til I awoke at dawn, rested and bemused, my path to home before me.
Walk among the nodding heads of ripened wheat, my friend. You too
may encounter magic.
