Spring on Lake Michigan

I look upon the water glittering and bright, white caps flashing, dancing diamonds in the light The breeze is strong, crisp and clear. Boats abound jibing sails dotted far and near A flash of white and screeching cry, seagulls appear racing through the sky Sun on my face fills me with cheer, for finally spring is here The coast before me melds into cityscape, buildings spiraling high. Glass and steel glimmer bright in the light, stretching far before my sight People hurry by hither and thither, and I wonder if any take a pause to consider The beauty of this place, this breath in time, spring is here truly a moment divine

Hi Jon.. powerful, well constructed write, my friend. Poetry Soup is an awesome place to display your creative, artist works. It's also an ideal place to meet and be shaped by other gifted poets.
