Northern Illinois is a part of the United States that is not renowned for its natural beauty. Yet, if you visit this area the subtle beauty that exists will surprise you. Fields of grain ready for the fall harvest ripple in the breeze. Curving creeksMoreNorthern Illinois is a part of the United States that is not renowned for its natural beauty. Yet, if you visit this area the subtle beauty that exists will surprise you. Fields of grain ready for the fall harvest ripple in the breeze. Curving creeks lead into wood lots where deer rest. Redtail hawks soar overhead in search of sustenance. Prairies burst out in color in the spring and fall. Hiking trails slip into glades where the shadows cool you on a hot summer day. Northern Illinois is a part of the world where majestic scenery of the Rocky Mountains or the Grand Canyon does not exist. However, it is a place where the poetry of the landscape and its residents does ring out. Here, in Prairie Musings, readers are treated to simple verses that describe the gentle beauty that can be found in such places.
