Patchwork Lands [Free Verse]

patchwork 
in shades of green, 
beige, 
and rust-red clay

geometries formed
of odd angles

spreading ahead
to the edge of
sight 
& 
imagination

so many fields
in so many states -
yet, all in one
time
&
place

there, I felt
a tad bit infinite,
being stretched
from a stable center
in all directions
as time sprawled
first to last
in no particular order

The ubiquitous Buddhist Monastery (Lamayuru, I believe)

 

Green oases line the valleys among otherwise desolate landscapes.
