I walk
A languid slowish pace
Through meadows
Rolling vibrant greens
To see what far beyond
My sight to see
What hidden lies
Just over
There
There

There I see
What love my heart cries
To beat, in tickled strains
Of cottonwood
And joyous hues of
Springs first virgin daffodil
I know to feel
Embrace the sweet of
Clover pressed to
Softened lips
Breathe
Breathe

Breathe in the
Roiling tepid air
In scented measures of
Dirt and richly fertile soil
To hold in weakened
Hands, the time too
Quickly past lost
To the winds, as they whip
These dreams from
Futile grasp, and I
Cry
Cry

Cry out to happiness
This long forgotten goal
As the sun beats down
In rays of hope
To keep up going
Calling
And I gaze in deep
To bluest skies
een through cloudy haze
With sightless eyes to see
With all I am and have
The truth that
Hides
Hides

Hides beneath the
Tears long since cried

Stunningly beautiful.  But in the same sense, deeply sorrowful.  My favorite kind of poetry...lovely words here, I enjoyed it greatly!

For a lady who claims no mastery of verse, much less free verse, you have that touch. You've painted an eloquent picture here Nic. I'm breathless. Again.
