Tassels

This seemed like a logical progression, after my granddaughter’s graduation from Iowa State University four years ago.

######################

Tassel-topped
Rows of
Maturing, green
Corn stalks

Resembled graduates
With, young
Fertile minds
Lined-up, for diplomas
On commencement day

Sweet, pollen perfume
Drifted, in thick, humid air
Nurturing rewarded
With ears, full of golden grain
