Apache Sunrise
I wake
from dreams of frozen yogurt
and polar bear kisses
to a grande sunrise over the superstition mountains
a jagged profile
 softened by early morning mist
apricot sky and blueberry rock formations
the snow has disappeared from four peaks
 my postcard view of distant
winter wonderland
I still hear the
 superstitions that hold the secret
to the Lost Dutchman's gold mine
whispering my name
 and buffeting the wind
they call

Your words are vivid expressing wonderful colors that nature gives us.  It's just up to us to take the time and look at it's beauty.  Thank you so much for bringing my thoughts to  a wonderful peaceful place.

There's gold in your poem and its beauty shines out like the rays of the sun. It's enough for me to find your poem's gold than have to buy some donkeys and look for that old Dutchman's mine. What a wast of time that would be, but not a waste of time reading your poem.

Oh, how I love this! Every line a poem. And at the end I felt mariah blowing through my hair. You are so good at nature poems. I was there in the heat of August when everything was dirt colored. You make me see it all in color. What a sight. This goes into Favorites. Nice work. ML

Linda Jo- What a colorful description;  The "apricot sky and blueberry rock formations" line evoked an accurate description of the late afternoon Arizona skyline that I remember when I was in Scottsdale in the late 80's.  I really liked this.

Dear Lady,


 "Wind they call Mariah"

 is always

associated with

"the sun will always shine".

It's about love & nature

& the feelings 

of young love.

Gogi Grant & Frankie Lane

express this sentiment

 so very beautifully

in their

lyrical melodies & harmonies.


All the best

for lyrical melodies

supported by love's harmonies,

Beautiful picture of the morning sunrise my CF in your land of Arizona Almost as beautiful as the sunrise over a peaceful yet noise loud swamp with the bellow of alligators, and the chirps and twitter of songbirds and the whoosh of the wind beneaththe wings of waterfowel.

You are one heck of a poet my CF more to share please!
