Poem in Response

After enjoying “Rusty Rose“, a wonderfully creative mixed media artwork by my dear friend, Tiffany Arp-Daleo, a Bohemiam Abstract artist residing in San Diego, California – and, knowing that she also enjoys the Grateful Dead – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

Just like San Diego 🎨
Just like old road trip shows 😎
Your art sings like Jerry 🎶
Ramble on Rusty Rose 🌹
