Georgia In My Mind

A tribute to Georgia O'Keefe.

Corrugated hills
turn into serrated mountains

The pale ribbon of road
climbs in the moonlight

until it's a skyway in the clouds.
Tomorrow, beneath a searing sun

I'll paint my happiness on canvas.
I now understand the light play

that tempted Georgia to leave
a sheltered life for this

ancient pile of sun bleached bones
touched by lavender and silver

as the day draws to a silent close.
