by Leonard M Hawkes

Poetry can be
When the Eye sees,
And the soul Speaks.


Poetry can be
A heart song remembered--
Well-beyond memory;


Spring light through beech leaves—
Sunset o’er the salt marsh—
A wilderness lake ‘neath the moon—
Pulsing-blue-white winter stars—


Recognized,
Rendered,
And Shared.

So very nice and I still those Wyoming nights, those mountains, the Snake River all talking to me. And there I am trying to take it all in barely understanding.

Nature furnishes wonderful poetic thought. Enjoyed the read.
