Poem in Response

After reading “Burn Brightly” by the talented and lovely Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee – wherein her inspirational poetic prose speaks to self-confidence, aspirations, and to make hay while the sun shines – I wrote this short poem…

She arose, this desert rose
As the sun in silhouette
Bridging space with song, in dance
Center stage, without regret
