Poem in Response

Having read “Superstition Mountain“, written by the talented and lovely Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein she draws spiritual nourishment, perspective and resolve in visiting majestic mountains near Phoenix – I was inspired to write this poem…

At golden hour
Above the sands
Old spirits join in song

From mountain tops
Upon the wind
As one, with you – stand strong

    Nice poem. I was lucky enough to live in Austin in the early 1980s, so I saw Stevie Ray many times 🙂

    What a sweet and complimentary poem in response Phil. 🙏🏽 Michele’s poem is a spiritual presentation indeed, especially on a mountain called Superstition. I feel my inner Stevie Wonder singing in the background! LOL 😍💖😜
