What I really like (Poem)

Cover of Neruda's Memoirs: Poems
Art by Randall David Tipton

During National Poetry Month I'll be featuring some of my poems from Neruda's Memoirs (T.S. Poetry Press, 2011). Today: "What I really like".

What I really like

is how words
aren't needed

to hold in mind

the slant the sun takes
when it pitches
a fit

of rays on the sea
at dusk

or the cut-through line
at the horizon's edge

once you've pulled back
and turned
for one last look

at the world

you've traveled to
and through

to reach home.
