Alpha-Sabbatical.

Updated on March 18, 2010

Alpha-sabbatical.

With dexterity
inspired by

a spark
in the

gleaming
coal black

of my
questioning orbs
I journey

on an
Alpha-sabbatical.


Time away

from life
to simply enjoy
climbing the hills,
and loops,

swooping over
the tight

valleys and
circumventing the
many horseshoe

curves that

circle an
inky landscape
which trails across
snowy whites 

mixed into 

wooded pulp.


Eberhard trees

lie at angles

casting graphite

shadows
as I sail

breathlessly
captivated

by thoughts
unleashed

and free.


Delighting in

the mind scapes
around me,

I savor 
my trip through
the poetrees 

lining a
babbling river

of words 
and flowing down

mounting stanzas
that boldly mark
horizons yet

to be reached.

      I really enjoyed this. My one piece of feedback is in regards to the last stanza. I feel you have overused the word "that." It is too repetitive for my liking. Otherwise, great work!
