BrooksLooks @ Wild

there is a 
lovely wildness
that still lives
here within
a need to
go discover
Nature’s spaces
as they’ve been

untouched places
left untrod
in shadowed canyons
out beyond
places not yet seen
or pondered
places not yet
felt nor wandered

out here
in these saged lands
chaparall
and red rock sands
high lonesome
condors call
aloft on desert winds
above it all

the need to
make a living
always plays a role
may it never
interfere
with the more
intrinsic goal
to go
to seek and there to find
the deepest depths
of one’s true soul

it’s taken years
and miles
to know what 
to leave behind
clearer now
the truth be told
as stillness
fills my mind

this place of
profound quiet
on a canvas
parched and painted
i savor every moment
lost in thoughts
at ease
elated

there is a 
lovely wildness
that still lives
here within
a need to
go, discover
Nature’s spaces
as they’ve been
