Poetry Landscape

Words march like soldiers in armor.
Scribbled sentinels guard secrets between the lines.
The steady crawl carries its own pictures–
Not on the page but in the mind.
I draw with my words. One cannot capture
Each mood of the sky with an image.
Who needs a paintbrush when your canvas is a thought?
