Brief Poem

Updated on June 28, 2017

A Very Brief Poem

I know the possibilities of tomorrow's panorama

sometimes escape through the sheets of rain

that often the neon lights sing

louder than the call of the incandescent

if you care to listen

a pair of binoculars stranded on a beach

somewhere in the Midwest

the aroma of yesterday

sometimes lingers through the lavender doorways

the purple silhouette allows

the mountains to remain visible

a starfish, some kelp

the shells await your touch

want to inform

you of their brief secrets

      This struck me as a collection of thoughts, each of which was destined to be a poem. Starfish and kelp/beach in the Midwest created that impression for me.

      It was a peaceful read for me; and I got lost in the pink purple haze of the image. Nice.
