Poem for a Friend

This poem was written for a very talented and lovely poetess hailing from Florida, Holly Hunter. She’s a friend who often brings a smile to my face, and a source of inspiration. I encourage you to visit her web site, House of Heart, to enjoy her creative writings – thank you!

Her smile across the stars
Shines light to warm my heart
So heavenly the glow
Holly – a work of art

    Phil, Holly is amazing in ways too many to count, but since I want to I will and say her words are things we can hang life’s hats on and she is the most generous online friend. As a hiker and mountain climber your blog is always a place I love to go, despite the sometime frugality of my words there.

      Yes, I agree dear Shehanne ~ Holly is marvelous! And, I also always appreciate you stopping by to visit, my friend. Please feel free to comment anytime you’d like. Thanks so much! 🤗

        I’m a big fan of the outdoors so I love seeing your posts actually. It’s great seeing the landscape of another country, especially when captured by someone with a real eye for it.

          Your kind words are music to my ears ~ thank you, dear Shehanne 🙏🙂

            I believe in calling it as I see it. I also well remember seeing many of your wonderful posts two years back at the time when we were not allowed to travel outwith the city boundaries here. I imagined I was in these places.
