America the Beautiful


America the Beautiful

I won’t whitewash my puzzlement. Can’t understand
why the people we’ve chosen to govern our land
Would consider it sane, for even a minute
to ever put toxic chemicals in it!


The prompt words today are  whitewash, puzzlement and toxic.

    And then the Town planning committees allow suburbs to be built over long-buried and forgotten toxic waste dumps. I recall a news story years back where one mother launched a battle to uncover the truth after her son and several other young children in her suburb had died of leukemia.

    Edward Hopper said all he wanted to do was paint sunlight on the side of a barn. American the Beautiful is achingly gorgeous stretches like this, grass, sky, simple nature. Love the photo and the sentiment.
