THE LITTLE I REMEMBER

THE LITTLE I REMEMBER

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

A nature write....a painting with words.

"

 
Cumulus clouds cross the sun while the sky fights to stay blue.
Spring stomps her feet impatient to be seen,
But winter simply laughs and adjusts the wind which
Deeds the day to instability and change.

March...and the snow hangs on like a tenacious pit bull.
Whatever is delaying spring rides high on Arctic currents
Which can't be controlled or explained
But CAN be felt in these arthritic creaking bones.

It's early morning and I'm winding my way down
A ribbon of highway leading to Bear Lake.
Humanity has thinned like a balding senior and
My thoughts are all that accompany the silence.

I was just remembering the horse-centered cultures
Of nomadic Indians who thought it not strange to see
These mountains capped with snow even in mid-July,
With their resonant synthesis of intent and discovery.

History for me becomes the dark side of the mountain
As great cloud-utopias burn out the west,
And the past becomes inevitable now that I call
The little I remember of it.....the past.

As I write this review, I feel as if I have been diabolically transported to your neck of the woods...it is only 37 in South Florida this morning! My arthritic creaking bones empathize with you this morning, my friend...all too much. Bittersweet reminiscing in this one....and beautiful imagery. May Springtime show her pretty self soon! Lydi**
