Poem in Response

Having read “Living Green and Dancing with Love” by Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee Sefton – in which she speaks about food, nurturing gardens and family – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

Your stature as poet, inspirational
Your beauty in dance, divine

Your thumb in the garden, green
A woman of talent, impressively fine.

      You’re very welcome, my friend. Were it not for inspiration, the ink in my pen would run dry. It is talented people such as yourself, creative writers sharing interesting stories, to whom I gratefully extend appreciation ~ thank you, Michele. 🌞🌹
