Last Friday night, at Leon Coverson Stadium in Greenville, Georgia, the Patriots faced the Cougars.  It was the red and black against the blue and white.  At the start of the game, the sun lingered behind a cloud.  A few minutes later, smoke from the concession stand floated over the field.  After four long quarters, the mighty Brookstone Cougars emerged victorious.

my little finger, shimmering


blues of the wild

iris, blossom

of the lily, immense,
