Poem in Response

Having read “Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright” by a talented poetess and dear friend from California, Cindy Georgakas – wherein she interweaves beautiful imagery with hopeful, endearing assurances – I was inspired to write this poem…

She sloshes in galoshes
Wading ankle-deep into memories

Fond reflections splashed with love
Buoy her spirits, like a summer breeze

    Phil, thank you for sharing your inspirations with us. They come out in so many unique and interesting ways and we are so lucky to receive them in such beautiful packages. Some people are only good at one thing – you are good at so many. And Seals & Crofts – “My Fair Share” one of the best songs in the world.
