Over at A to Z Challenge we’re reminded that this is a challenge and to Never Give Up! The Janus word is nonplussed.

A Skewed View
this trip to Palouse is a bust
everything covered in dust
and the haunt cancelled, I trust
curse this wanderlust
but if I adjust
my view just a touch
to the rolling hills of lush green and rust
swirling and diving in natural flux
the sun piercing the clouds makes the dust
in a gust
sparkle like stardust
