Haute-Couture From the Valley

Haute-Couture From the Valley

A Poem by Astro

The initial feeling of finding oneself tethered to the valley floor of the Rockies for a spell.

I'm Stuck

Pinned upon a heaving breast,
a seductive coat that draws
the eyes and beckons the mind.
The color of Sagebrush, Goldenrod
           and Soil.

I'm Fashioned

But...not yet adorned.
I exist as a part of the plan
an accepted eventuality~
The coat of snow that is to fall,
carries me within it...
                                      like the Cold.

I'm Tucked

Into a narrow pocket,
as a kerchief might be;
or better yet - a button loop
searched for by curious hands
over top a suit made up
of majestic mountains
and tailored...
                         by Time.

As I ponder my perspective,
the only question that begs:

Is whether or not, I too can ever
Rise up from among its creases?

This is the type of poetry I started reading years ago that encouraged me to keep writing. I really like it, it starts from warm to cold to security and solution.

Astro, this is so wildly good. The landscapes you paint are as if a master's brush has taken magical paint to the page. There is so much that I enjoy about this piece that I think I will read again. Very cool my friend.
