even the nights are better     wavered     landed at the bottom     country hits     recurrent     lyrics
timeless     maintain a positive attitude     without major flaws     solid straight line     involvement
Musically speaking,
 my transition from Big Sky to Desert Sunrise
means moving the dial from
Anne Murry to Lady Antebellum.
Even the nights are better
smooth jazz playing on my radio,
KYOT, the Coyote
while another chorus of coyotes
sing their own lyrics from the wild side of my block wall fence.
Thinking of leaving wilderness country hits hard
Storm Lake, trout fishing, the perfect cast,
again my worm lands on the bottom,
whoa! the familiar strike...
a rainbow!
As I try to maintain a positive attitude
I follow the solid straight line of highway
through the velvety soft hills of Montana...southward.
Like a moving postcard, Utah is breathtaking; an invitation
to stay aboard a houseboat on Lake Powell.
A recurrent dream plays in my mind like a string of country hits.
I am driving backwards; trying to navigate winding roads
at white-knuckle speeds,
and no brakes.
The Book of Dreams says I am afraid
of losing control; refusing to move forward with my life
But I hear the cactus wren calling...
as well as arizona sunsets, bocci ball on the lawn,
warm nights under desert moon,
friends at the door...
and I can't wait to get home to my own bed!
Author's Notes:

I am moving from my summer home in Montana to my winter home in Arizona this weekend so this is what has inspired this poem from the word bank.  Give me a few days to get settled and I will be here to read, enjoy and comment on your creative poems.

I've been through Montana and I've been through Arizona.  I can't believe you are leaving Montana to go to Arizona.  Ok, I can believe it.  I've never wintered in Montana but I understand their winter's are a little rough.  I love the way you maneuvered the words throughout the poem.  Great job.  I think I'll borrow the list and try it myself.  Where did it come from, if I may ask?

Beauty is found in all states .... you just have to look harder in some than others.

Well done

Nice one here, good usage of words. I had that same situation as you, going from my Florida home in winter, to my New Jersey home in summer. Now I just have my apartment in Jersey, having sold both homes.
