Poem in Response

Oftentimes, creative people excel in several areas. This is the case with my beautiful friend from India – Mukti Masih. I’ve enjoyed reading her poetry, and, seeing her wonderful paintings, was inspired to write this short poem:

She stood by a wall
A wall with her art

I marveled at both
Felt warmth in my heart

A camp on the lake
Moonlit glowing skies

Reflections of light
From stars, and her eyes
