Poem for a Friend

Often a source of inspiration, I wrote this poem for a friend – Michele Lee. A proficient poetic storyteller, dancer and photographer, I encourage you to visit her site to read and enjoy her creative works!

Donning overalls
Without any shoes
To a rhythm set by spoons

In a sun-shower
Dancing wet with rain
Bringing thunder to monsoons

By the name Michele
She’s creative from the heart

Crafting poetry
Taking photographs
She’s both beautiful and smart

Very down to earth
And I’m down with that
Though know that she’s spoken for

Were it different
With her interest
I’d be knocking at her door

On a dusty road
She’s a tumbleweed
Her words flow, her spirit free

Writing on retreat
Northwest to southeast
At Her Cottage by the Sea
