Southern Dreams

Southern Dreams

A Poem by Mark Mendoza

Pastoral scene in my mind,
What do you wish to tell me with that elusive view of your countryside?
Is this remembrance of home of my soul?
Do I belong to the affections of a southern novel yet to be told?
Are Twain and Grisham to blame?
Or the trees of Georgia, withholding forgotten dreams?
Whatever you may be,
You are ineffably compelling.

i think the countryside personified here.
it's like a muse...
a story to be told....and maybe a combination of both Twain and Grisham..
and those trees of Georgia...the beauty...Tara...the land
am reminded of Gone With the Wind....the land and Scarlett O'Hara.

One wonders whether the lines are addressed to the countryside of Georgia or to a particular individual. Whatever the case, the affection seems genuine. Very nice.
