by Leonard M Hawkes

I know you in the fullness
Of the January Moon--
The pale night sky,
The faded Winter stars.

Raw and naked,
Simmering in the salt brine--
My Soul sings out
And you are the answer.


Author's Note: At the hot spring on the north shore of the Great Salt Lake.

Joy found in raw nature. Sharp images.

Raw honesty, quite difficult to achiece, love it.
