Here’s my attempt at a Water Poem:
“at the end of march,” by Robert Lee Brewer
when the breeze stirs just so
i feel the need for savannah's
water ways & large oak trees
dripping spanish moss & spirits
across the cobblestones &
bridges stretching from ocean
to past of those squares that
are just right for a stroll in
the evening with a trumpet
& streetlights & possibilities
