The Oklahoma countryside reflects soft green rolling hills dotted with fat red cattle grazing.
The sky offers tie dyed blue hues scattered with marshmallow clouds and the sun is shining.
Lemon tinted wildflowers decorate the pastures drawing butterflies with shimmering wings.
The pond is rippled by a gentle breeze and the scissortails sail balancing on outstretched wings.
The black bass propels herself into the sky to catch a dragonfly and the cattle just keep grazing.
She is so graceful as her tail twists around and her gills open wide with her dark eyes shining.
The turtles hang round harvesting blackberries so deep purple they look black and shining.
The farmer’s geese waddle to the pond splashing water skyward, flapping snow white wings.
Life stirs and moves, the clouds roll changing shapes, still the cattle unaware keep on grazing.
It’s amazing, cattle grazing unaffected by Oklahoma’s butterflied, scissor tailed, goslin wings.
