ARKANSAS WHISPERS

ARKANSAS WHISPERS

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

fearless

naked

powerful...

brilliant personification - I actually didn't read the tag - and skim read titles lol and so thought it described the water - which it does brilliantly as well I might add - "fearless, naked, powerful" - great descriptions! nice!!

I really like how you personified the state. I think that really gave an extra degree of life to the land. Also, there is such a deep tone of love in this poem. Those elements create a beautiful moment of peace and admiration. One can tell that you really love your state

I would really say Wonderful..How we want to describe a whole region, a whole concept is original to us, and you have done it so poignantly..Like the free flowing waters, oh the images of water, flowing, freely..indeed powerful Arkansas is..A great tribute to your state..

Craig, you make me so proud to be an Arkansan - This is beautiful .. Arkansas Whispers.. This is absolute beauty.. your words and this place that you feel so at one with nature, the earth and are filled with peace.
I have been here, Twin Falls a few times and always wanted to stay..
You have written a wonderful poem for Arkansas.

Living in this state also, I know and can appreciate all of the God made beauty here..Lakes, rivers, streams, rolling fields full of cows, with a low mountain in the background..Each day we get to see beauty in nature..Lola nd God bless..yes I too love the state,,Kathie
