--is the color of vastness, emptiness, herds of pronghorn disappearing into distance
--thirst, starvation, caravans dying by dry wells, bitter alkali dust
--rim, basin, rusted barb-wire, short-horn Hereford, jackrabbit, rattlesnake, prairie falcon

--color of cozy kitchen cabinet, Delft china spice jars, Mason jars, pickle jars
--matched napkins and dinnerware, stoneware, enamel-handled spoons and forks
--fridge front, dish towel, cookbook dogeared to favorite savory bread recipe

--cleanness, cleansing, old spirits going into good air
--ash-dipped feathers painting smudge smoke over old stains
--time, past time, old tears washed by new rain

silver sage, blue sage, purple sage, gray sage, yellow blossom sage.
