Pasque Flower (Anemone patens)

Pasque Flower (Anemone patens)

On the first heated afternoon of a slow moving spring

Guided by the knowledge of sensible mentoring

A rocky hill climb to spot hundreds of rare sightings

The scarcity of such sights is worrisome

Nearly all of the prairies now wastelands

Deserts of irreversible greed

Neighboring land owners are senselessly blind to such impossible conditions

They see money, subdivided mastery of natural law

The post-world-war cruelty, nothing is sacred

Now, here, in the strong gusts of wind I understand

Only 5 acres remain in a 100 square miles, or more

Just as endangered as the rainforest or coral reef

More so, extinct

Development plows on

Nothing missed by a species of manipulators

Until it is gone forever
