This landscape could be mistaken
For an African savanna
Caught at this moment of sunset
And angle of light chasing across
The tops of these hills.

Trees looking crooked
As if bent on a vast plain
The haze of dew settling
As if rising from a windswept arid place.

It reminds me of Kenya
Just these tops of hills
Melding into a dusty plain
One I’ll never see again, but now.
