Best Poem of kendall thomas

Spring Blessings

Rivers wind unnoticed
through the brown hills
and budding trees,
where dark, little birds
pierce the blue sky.

I drift in vague symmetry
lying somewhere on the grass,
among the wild onion sprouts,
and watch the
cherry blossoms fall
like tardy flakes of winter snow.

I want to hug the earth
and kiss the sky;
but one is too big,
the other too high.

The billowing clouds
drift stately by,
as imperious as spirit barks
of long-dead pharaohs
and their queens;
and I dream of Cleopatra
and beautiful Nefertiti...

The Mountain Climber

What shall I do now?
Follow the sun from its rising
into the valley far below
or shall I climb higher
to better see
how far darkness goes
and how high these rocks have come
from vanished seas?
I come to taste the salt
