Georgia Dreams

Georgia Dreams

A Poem by P.S.

A beautiful day in sunny Georgia.... yes?


Green grass


Under my small feet

I could walk through it for hours

But I lay down instead

On the grass, under the tree

Honey locust

The soft breeze blows

So different from the bitter,

Harsh winds of the North

This breeze carries scents

Flowers of the state

Cherokee Rose and Mountain Laurel

The trees whisper

As their leaves rub together

Black Willows and Sugarberries

Tell me their secrets

The hot Georgia sun

Keeps me warm

Keeps me safe

As it freckles my skin

I close my eyes

For just a moment

True serenity in my mind

When suddenly a disturbance

An alarm clock in the distance

An alarm clock?

My eyes open in shock

It is five a.m.

In northeastern Vermont

It is December

It is snowing

The wind is whistling

Beyond the confines of my bedroom

My bed is toasty

I am still warm

I am under five blankets

And am in Georgia no more.

I live near Ga. and love to go smell the magnolias and marvel at the cotton fields, gaze at the moss filled trees and be graced by the Southern hospitality. Somehow it's always summer in Ga even in the fall, when I hike the mountains. Beautiful imagery here such talent ..
