Inspiration piece

Wide Open Wonder
By Kathleen Finn Jordan

The slopes and angles kiss the eye
The light and shadow taunts
The sparseness hungers for colors bright
To bathe, enliven these haunts
The brushstroke trees prickle the air
The sharpened tines shoot tall
A little bird seeks a tiny lunch
The landscape disappoints in winter’s thrall
Landscape as character in so many lives
Playing a role and dictating what’s done
The slopes and angles welcoming some
For others a choice a beach and some sun
But wanderers seek the quiet the sparse
Painting in mind on a canvas so vast
The thoughts deep in mind and brushing the soul
A feeling of depth and contentment at last!
