3 and milkweed, whose feminine pods are turned, some up like a cupped hand

4 others down like an umbrella

7 to sparkle in the orange light of the setting sun

11 At the Rim of the Horizon by Ruby R. Wilson Ruby Wilson writes of making poems in her kitchen: “with potato water/ honey, yeast and flour.” These poems are accessible but never simplistic. They speak to each one of us in their richness of detail.” — Linda Hasselstrom, Dirt Songs and others: Also available at: Amazon.com The South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum The South Dakota Art Museum Published by Finishing Line Press https://finishinglinepress.com/ In At the Rim of the Horizon, Ruby R. Wilson pays attention. She zeros in on remnants of the South Dakota prairie—its grasses and transcendent skies—to cull ordinary, beautiful moments for poems. — Christine Stewart-Nuñez, author of Keeping Them Alive
