Itís a hill yet itís more of an incline
Its beauty is solitude its beauty is mine
Where the grass brushes its fingers against me
There are no boundaries; nothing to fence me

A painted sky scape of matte black this goodnight
Entranced by the moon begets pen points of light
And tears from my soul could be sadness or joy
Ancient I feel a rag doll a pull toy

A place for nothingness lacking emotion
A place to spit in the still water ocean
A place to jump from the incline I love
To walk a mile and crash down from above

Itís a secluded desert isle I smile and I say
Iíll find it and go there and be happy one day

Walt~
You made this place so inviting ...
great job with the imagery.
We all have that special 'hill' that
we can retreat to for our serentiy.

You're touching much beauty from within.
Greatly enjoyed, my friend.

Walt BRAVO! I love this. I hope you find that place someday, a hint *look within*

A place I'd like to be right about now, serene picture you painted.

I enjoyed this very much, Walt. Up until the end line, I thought you were sharing how you feel about a place you "already" knew, your home, perhaps. Your presentation here is superb, giving us "true" understanding with your very last line.
