shades of blue

back in Georgia
where there are
wide open spaces
long winding roads
acres of pastures
miles of trees
not so much sky
a lot more land

back in Georgia
where the clouds
touch the ground
and the ground
is 3000 feet above
the ocean in Key West
where I was
a few days ago

back in Georgia
where the view
out my window
is still beautiful
the shades of blue
are deeper and layered
the people are family
the place is home

Very nicely worded. I'm glad you're back home for Christmas.
