Wheat Field with Rising Sun, Vincent Van Gogh, 1889

Streams of Amber

When love’s fingertips brush fields,
purple, amber and golden streams flow,
trickle down to hungry souls,
drip into an earth
permeable to tears of human feet,
and ambered grace of grains
is transformed
into red, white and blue
frosted independence day cakes.
