The West Beckons

I won 3rd place in Poetry in the Oquirrh Writers Contest.

Here is the piece I entered:

The West!

The cry echoed

Off mountains

And meadows

And streams

The West!

Came the shout

From thunder

And lightening

And gods

The West!

The wind whispered

As thousands poured

Through the rocky gates

Full of dreams
