I’m a photographer, designer and artist. And, from time to time, I indulge myself with words. I’m not a poet, per se, but there are times when I do enjoy the creative process of writing short poems. Yet, to do so requires a source of inspiration…
Fortunately, I have a good friend named Carla Milho, a gifted writer from Lisbon, Portugal, with whom I converse on a regular basis. I’m grateful for her friendship, and always enjoy her writings – some of which have inspired these poems as my response:
Were the day night, and night to be day,
The tables changed of linens and wax.
A challenge of discovery,
Unraveling to be my task.
Response to “Uncover Me If You Are Able“, by Carla Milho
The story you write in the book that you share,
the smiles and the laughter contagious.
True friendship with Carla is really a treat,
her sense of humor outrageous!
Response to “I Already Know What I Need…A Pinch of Salt“, by Carla Milho
Beauty in the pen,
Through the hand,
From the mind.
To share inner thoughts,
Conscientious and kind.
She writes from the heart,
Her topics refined,
Developed and with voice.
Response to “Muse“, by Carla Milho
⭐ A light to the east,
In the sky.
🕊 A dove is released,
And my wish
Came to fly.
🙏 Bound for the heavens,
In a prayer.
❤️ The woman I love,
We will share.
Response to “Make A Wish To A Star And It Will Come True“, by Carla Milho
