State Park Chueh-chu


State Park Chueh-chu 

State parks are a world without fear

where thoughts, like clean streams, all run clear

where we go to think deep on life

to give thanks for all we hold dear

State parks are diversity realms

where those from all lands gather near 

where everything around you is 

a rainbow of skin-color cheer 

*Chueh-chu form AABACADA, first stanza in monosyllables, in response to Kwame Alexander’s invitation for poems to celebrate National Parks and Recreation Month – July 2021
