A Poem by Jake Staffeld

It's a beautiful place I live.


As the sun casts an orange hue

Over these slate gray purple mixed mountains

And the tall grass sway in the breeze

Look up to the sky

And see frolicing birds

And wonder in natures majesty


As the full moon illuminates an almost empty desert

Pick a way through these stunted bushes

And this plethoric sage grass

Watch the ridge grow larger

The closer you get


Hear the horses whinny

And the dogs barking

While passing by these friendly people

On the way to a lovely park


See the crisp blue of the river

White rapids evident

Flowing lazily through

To the sea


Ski the whitest snow

See the magnificent ever greens

 And glory in natures magnificance

The description in this is amazing. You took me there; to where this took place with the pictures you painted. Beautiful!

You took me to a good place in your words. When you can see the power and beauty of nature. Life is always better. I like the description and good visions create by this excellent poem. Thank you.
