Freely Roam (poem)

Freely Roam

 

You know I long to roam, at my will
Like wildlife and buffalo
In the wild backdrop of forested hills

I see herds on the path, just downhill
Past steaming springs, bubbling above ground
It makes me long to roam, at my will

I hike back trails and hear unknown trills
Listen to muffled messages in tall grasses
Against a wild backdrop of forested hills

Pronghorn deer fly with effortless skill
Unbound in the valley below
And it makes me long to roam, at my will

I hear the osprey –  a shrill
Cry amidst a settled peacefulness here
And it makes me long to freely roam, at my will
In the wild backdrop of forested hills

This poem is a villanelle (my first attempt) and written for a poetry prompt about Yellowstone Park for Tweetspeak Poetry. I had the privilege of visiting Yellowstone for the first time this past August; a fascinating, unusual, and beautiful place.
