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

steaming stripped of her down hill power she rises to float darken then crack ,and shower down tin roof popping pellets.
