As Far as the Eye Can See

Ribbon rails turn a curve
and disappear beyond the eye.

She walks a path
between winding river
and honey scented gorse.

…A whirr of wings, a goldfinch,
a burst of full-throated song…

Vines and wildflowers tangle
through her mind.

The breeze is warm;
she lifts her face
to taste the sun.

  1. You took me back to memory lane , dear Sarah.
    I love those walks along a river.
    Your words and beautiful images brought me right there.
    Thank you for sharing.
    love,
    Francina

    This is such a lovely detailed poem. Most of the poems that I’ve read so far on this site, although beautiful, are a little too abstract in my opinion. I love how concrete your poems are.
