Summary

Can you imagine being isolated in the middle of treeless grassland with only a dirt roof over your head? Having to feed your children with whatever wild plants or animals you could find living on the prairie? 
Sweating to plow the sod, plant the seed, cultivate the crop—only to lose it all by a hailstorm right before you harvest it? 
This second book in the Planting Dreams series portrays Swedish immigrant Charlotta Johnson as she and her husband build a farmstead on the Kansas prairie. 
This family faced countless challenges as they homestead on America’s Great Plains during the 1800's. Years of hard work develop the land and improve the quality of life for her family- but not with a price. 
Readers compare Hubalek’s books as a combination of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House on the Prairie” books, “The Emigrants” series by Vilhelm Moberg, and a Willa Cather novel.

    Haikus are one of my favorite forms of poetry. I've combined a bunch that I have written over the years into a book. Please enjoy over 100 haikus! 
    This is the first book in my series and some of these may not be as good as other books in the series.

    the only way to grasp the magic
    is to toll in the stony fields
    among the rustic ruins of struggle
    hoping the voice returns

    Where does happiness live? 
    
    Is it in a tree? 
    Is it in the sea? 
    Is it by the mall? 
    Is it found in Fall? 
    
    Where does happiness live? 
    
    Is it in a book? 
    Is it by a brook? 
    Is it in the food? 
    Is it the game Snood? 
    
    Where does happiness live, 
    and why can’t I find it?

    Fine sand like tiny pearls glisten in the sunlight
    the waves crash 
    a diagonal rush of roaring sound
    
    the water laps at painted toenails
    for a moment I'm jealous of the sea
    wishing I could lick your silky thigh
    
    but for now we walk along the beach
    sandpipers scurry on toothpick legs
    gulls cry out across the salty air
    
    From the poem "Fine Sand"

    This is the second to last book in the series and features more of my poems. After multiple years of writing different types of poetry I hope people can start to understand more about me as a person. Writing poetry has helped me discover myself and I hope to share a bit of myself with the reader.
