Olympic & Hoh Rainforests Region USA, Pacific Northwestern USA, 16" x 20" oil on canvas
~ My Eye Will Not Forget ~
Blurred vision of a distant horizon --
Cedar rhythms dance my eye --
American rainforest a-drip with neon green.
Rivers run my pulse.
Sunset explosion of fiery, bright orange --
Solid color fills the sky,
As if upon another world!
The trees come down to kiss the shore
Where Pacific waves have their way.
Red forest trails --
My eye is filled with wonder!
Water hovers in the air.
Faces look from shapes in trees;
Moss beds and alder swamps,
Blue mountains hold a burning secret.
My eye will not forget.
