    I see
    Faces
    Dry places
    Spaces
    Blotches of
    Lonely
    Clouds
    Mile for mile

    While clouds sing
    In
    Native tongue
    Stare grey and blank
    Cool misty breeze
    Cools mountain rock
    Moisture previously
    Blocked by
    Tints of
    Red
    Black
    Brown
    Indigo
    And
    Green

    Open your eyes and
    Tell me what you see?

    A
    Native
    Image
    Of
    ME.

    For me, this painted an image on beauty and loneliness at the same time, and to do that, takes talent.
