Prairie Children

Like the wind beating upon the Rockies
We were shaped
Like the grasses
We learned over time
To endure, and
To flow
In silence
As if at we had not a care in the world

We rested
Under blankets of snow
Until Chinooks exposed our fragile wisps
Like the wildflowers
We were rare
And hard to find
– Maggie
