Poem in Response

Having read “The Dance“, written by the talented and lovely Floridian poetess, Holly Hunter – in which a beautiful redhead at the Sad Café holds the light of her heart in her hand – I was inspired to write this poem…

Rhythm in waves
They found the beach
To make the moon their own

Two hearts as one
One dance in sync
In love, never alone

Update: I’ve added a second writing, Poem in Response: Part II.

      Yay, Annabel!!! 🌷 I’ve missed you and it’s soooo nice to see you, my lovely friend! Waking up to your beautiful, captivating smile is a most welcome way to start my day, and (please forgive me for saying) I wish it were much more often. You bring warmth to my heart and joy to my spirit on this winter solstice, and I hope that all is going well for you on the west coast. I appreciate your kind words – thank you, my dear – and wish for you a Merry Christmas! May your days be filled with great happiness and peace, and your heart with much love. ❤️

        Your greetings always brings me joy and smiles, Phil! 😊Thank you so much for the gift of kind words!

        I am doing very well. Just flew back from France 🇫🇷. And yes, hope I will find more time blogging and connecting with friends more often in 2023! It’s been too much traveling, teaching, and performance rehearsing this year.

        Merry Christmas 🎄 and Embracing 2023!!
