BrooksLooks @ Great Smokies

my heart has raced
on your leaf strewn trails
where nature thrives
sweet peace prevails

take me out
beyond the noise
to your deep coves
and soulful joys

on each fringed ridge
atop lofty bald
eagles fly
where I am called

through walls of rhododendra
clouds of gentle mist
close in on me, i breathe and ponder
at last why i exist
