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.

A lot of great descriptions in this poem that give way to some great visualizations. Great work. I hope to see more poems from you .
