Illustration by Phil Blank. Mason– Dixon Lines poetry by Maurice Manning Some people plant their collards in rows for a neat, predictable arrangement.

All over creation—allowing the mind to contemplate a vastness is pleasing. And who would argue with creation? The result of the old- fashi oned way puts one in mind of a green sea with a bluish haze above it like a cloud. It looks like everything that is is there, a waist- high and leafy green eternity.
