Waiting Hearts - Views from a Plane

Before I left for Nevada, I shared my poem 'Pulled Away' (January 2013) from my ongoing Views from a Plane series.  Today, I would like to share one of the new poems that I wrote on my way to Nevada (April 15, 2014) along with a photo of the view that inspired it.

Waiting Hearts

Silver Threads - photo by AVR
Silvery threads
Embroidered onto
Patches of quilt

Abstract pattern of
Lines and squiggles
Hides beneath clouds

As I am taken
To eager hearts
In the distant west

And you must wait
Alone at home for
Me to return
