Door County Writes: ‘The Clearing’

Poetry by Richard Peter

The Clearing’s prism
fans the flames
of thought rainbows
never imagined.

A kaleidoscope opens
holding infinite shades
of fanciful pastels
and reality solids.

Hues of dew anoint 
leaving the seeker
centered in spirit
grounded in nature.

Richard Peter has enjoyed creating poetic dreamscapes and committing emotion to poetry since 1960. His ties to Door County include yearly camping trips and four summers at The Clearing.
