Writing Challenge: Rippling Wheat

Dear friends: Today I want to spent the day honoring the mother of my children. ;o) So I thought I'd post this very cool video I took yesterday, while walking on Davis Road with my daughter. These rolling hills overlook the Genesee Valley in Upstate New York, just west of the Finger Lakes. Mute your sound, because the wind (which took down a big tree in my yard last night!) was soooo loud and that's tough to capture on a camera video. But the visual is so calming and beautiful, it's worth it!

So, here's the deal. It the mood strikes you, write 100 words about this rippling wheat field. Anything is game - fantasy, poetry, mystery... whatever works for you!

Have fun, and for those of you who are mom's (particularly S.W., Marta, and Kim!), HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Your poor tree! *sniff* That wind was something, wasn't it?

I have to figure out how to fix the flash player on this thing (grrr, so many things that must be replaced now - oh, thank you, amazing melting hard drive. Grr.)

Hope you and your wife and girls had a great Mother's Day!

Thanks for the nice sentiment, Aaron, and for the great beauty you have found there in your video. I am thinking about a 100 word something... :)
