A Poem by An owl on the moon

My state of Arkansas personified…











In soft curves

draped in jade-colored silks

water glides down her soft skin

in crystal droplets

ribbon rivers…


Her voice is wind whispers

lush emerald tones

and her words

deep sapphire lakes

full and running free…


She is

:) Arkansas is my home and I experience the beauty everyday. Have you visited the Buffalo River? Breathtaking!

You paint such sheer beauty with few delicate chosen words and create a

magical scene of pure enchantment which one can truly call art!!
