America The Beautiful In Springville: Revolutionary ImproVerse Free Verse Poem

June 14, 2017

When you are
in a rose garden
with Abe,
Psyche,
a great spirit warrior,
the Spirit of Life,
a foal and moose,
Paul Revere,
the setting sun,
and America the Beautiful,
you can’t help but weep
with gratitude and joy,
even when a teenaged church class
comes rushing through,
looking for Love
in all the wrong places.
Springville Museum of Art Sculpture Garden -- America the Beautiful

Compare The Cold Sunrise And Be Grateful: Revolutionary Blogging Sonnet

SoCal Palm tree sunset -- warm sea breeze at San Clemente BeachShe would send me photos/
of tall SoCal tropical trees/
silhouetted in the red sunset;/
dancing in the warm sea breeze.

As if to entice me/
to visit and to stay./
To warm my feet in the sand/
and watch the palm trees sway.

I returned the photo favor/
of a frigid, streaming sunrise:/
A frosted cottonwood silhouetted/
against cold blue mountain skies.

T’was not to tempt her, nor to say I was coldly sad,/
but to remind her to be grateful for the warm beauty she had.
Cold Sanpete County frosted cottonwood sunrise
