Serene and breath taking. I close my eye's and what do I see? Those blue Kentucky hills staring back at me. The wind singing through the trees. The murky lake water cold on my toes. Soft blue grass beneath my feet, tears fill my eyes. I am home, I am free. Take a deep breath of that fresh country air, dazzled by the wild stallion dancing throught the breeze. The rain pours down like crystals from the sky, caressing each petal to an orange glow as the sun slowly fades. Music and singing picking that guitar, dirty jokes while the bud light quickly disappears. Loving laughter over an open flame, fresh fried cat fish and peach cobbler are to blame. Look around everyone is here, good laughter, good times, good cheer. I close my eye's and what do I see? My ole Kentucky home staring back at me.
