Tennessee Greets Me - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

Tennessee Sunset
Tennessee greets me

Driving to the family homestead

Felt the land's sweetness

© 2018  M.N. Hopkins

Note: This was inspired during the watching of a music show filmed in Tennessee and it bought back an old memory of driving toward Dad’s old place of birth and youth.  While in the car, I could feel an intense feeling of sweetness that felt like a greeting as if the spirit of the place was welcoming me.  This is the spirit that I wish to convey in this poem.

I wrote this poem over the weekend and published it for the first time on my blog today, the 30th of July, 2018 in the haiku style of poetry.

Hello and thank you for sharing!

Nice pic and poem. I also like the difference sensations you can get at certain areas. I think US has so many more placera of powerful areas and nature and it is a sweet sensation egen those moments appear.
