Transformation

Born in a valley's secluded mountain range Wandered along the rivers clear Knelt in havens carved in a forest Escaped to dwell at ocean's shore Enticed to follow budding dreams And there, while chasing butterflies The barren desert bloomed

    I love the use of nature in a poem. This poem says a lot in a few lines, very decriptive, another good one here Karen! MC

    oh goodie, I found one right here. I love how you included the butterfly because it's a metaphor in itself for transformation!

Vermont-land locked ; no ocean. but I am enticed to dream and chase butterflies. I have seen the barren desert bloom when I lived in Nevada.

    Harry, your coments are so encouraging, thank you. This is a short version of my actual journey from Utah, to the Oregon Coast and then to Nevada. I hope to add to this journey in the future. I also love walking through your words.

    I am always amazed by poets who can pack so much imagery into a handful of short lines. As a true nature lover, I find this poem stunning. The last line is perfect!
