haiku for july 4th, 2009, illinois usa

hot illinois fourth
corn of all sizes shimmering
spring planting stories

kickapoo bottoms
bobcat's tracks pressed deep in mud
poet's mind gone blank

minor league baseball,
packed stadium, sea of cub
jerseys, fourth fireworks

outside of use,
rolling hills, shaded valleys;
sunny, lazy fourth

illinois river,
night settles on weedy banks;
folks wait for fireworks

river bank wildflow'rs;
overgrown blooms hide car's nose-
we've gone in for fish
