Silo Tombs



Prairie towns

dotted across cornfields and wheat fields

deserted by youth

too full of dreams to stay

no longer vibrant hubs


coffee conversations

church suppers

VFW beers and stories

school fairs

Friday night lights

worn out

drained of energy

dim and eerily silent

in their eminent death

silo tombs

of the heartland

This is something a little bit different from my normal writing but something very close to my Midwestern heart.  “Silo Tombs” was a prompt by the fantastic JulyFalls18 prompters.  This came to me as I traveled this weekend past many a silo and small town.  God bless America’s small towns.
