Shelley L Baxter Poems

*** A Portrait Of Erica...

Her black hair pulled back loosely,
flowing like a long shiny crimped mane,
with a few strands all about her withdrawn face.
My God, please take care of this teenager...

as bird songs whisper my name in the trees...
the breeze circles me enfolding me in its tune,
a serenade that happens on beautiful days in June.

whose leaves are still, quiet and at peace?
A palm along a lonely shore
that moves not...there's no breeze.
