    After reading “Burn Brightly” by the talented and lovely Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein her inspirational poetic prose speaks to self-confidence, aspirations, and to make hay while the sun shines – I wrote this short poem…

    She arose, this desert rose
    As the sun in silhouette
    Bridging space with song, in dance
    Center stage, without regret

    Poem in Response

    Having read “Muted Castle“, by talented poetess, dancer and dear friend Annabel – wherein she speaks to personal experiences of relocation, love and memories of her homeland – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

    Through wind and rain
    Your words retain
    A soothing sound of love

    Despite hardship
    This distant trip
    A godsend from above
