Poetry Travel

Looking back to Zion

I had a renewed appreciation for water and lush landscape once I returned from the desert back to Ohio.

The shot at the end shows a little break in the desert with the Virgin River as it streams through Zion.

Here in Ohio


Turn on the faucet and I get the fresh

mouth of spring open at my fingertips.


Ohio Summer Storm


At the ledge of the river

a storm swells in the distance

the lamplight flickers on and off with every gust

a tornado touches down 100 miles from here

makes a green sky.

The trees hold their bent positions

when everything releases.
