Pioneers on the causeway by Tod Robbins

Pioneers on the causeway cast a light before their footsteps.
God’s heels are golden carrots leading the people to an emerald field: Feed them.
My hands are interstates, canals, dams, sewers, street lamps, stairways, and a field.



Transferring translucent treasures,

This vision carried the last to the first beam.

    Glad I saw those words. I’m sure I’ve never come across anything like them before. Thanks for sharing your verse.
