Poem for a Friend

A lovely poetess and friend hailing from the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, Michele Lee Sefton has worked diligently over the past nineteen months authoring her first book – presently, being edited. I wrote this short poem in honor of her hard work, and I encourage you to visit her site to learn more!

Waves riding the wind
Wash her hair in the sun
Words written with ink
Drying now, almost done

She’s a southwestern rock star
A flowering desert rose
With a tumbleweed spirit
And a story line that flows

So, purchase her book
Coming soon, out for sale
Sit back and enjoy
Michele’s creative tale

    It was nice of you to write this, Phil. I appreciate your time and support. My book project is coming along, but not “coming soon.” The journey to publication is a lengthy and interesting one. Soon enough that will be accurate. 😄Thank you! 🙏🏻
