    Poem in Response

    After reading “My Inspired Blog Back Story“, written by the very talented and lovely Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein she elaborates upon her decision to pursue writing, discusses challenges, hard work and successes – I was inspired to write this poem…

    From an absence of light came a spark in the dark
       In a call from her dreams to connect with her heart
    Inspiration brought joy with both truth and reward
       When she answered to make a creative fresh start

    NOTE: this poem uses the Preformatted Block, which allows for indentation of text exactly as pasted. However, in so doing, a monospace font is used.

    Poem for a Friend

    A lovely poetess and friend hailing from the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, Michele Lee Sefton has worked diligently over the past nineteen months authoring her first book – presently, being edited. I wrote this short poem in honor of her hard work, and I encourage you to visit her site to learn more!

    Waves riding the wind
    Wash her hair in the sun
    Words written with ink
    Drying now, almost done

    She’s a southwestern rock star
    A flowering desert rose
    With a tumbleweed spirit
    And a story line that flows

    So, purchase her book
    Coming soon, out for sale
    Sit back and enjoy
    Michele’s creative tale

    An Aspiring Writer

    Do You Speak Portuguese? I don’t, but I have a friend from Portugal who is an aspiring writer with a Google Translate button in the sidebar – she is Carla Milho.

    I encourage you to visit her site and follow her work! She’s an honest, truthful person who writes from the heart with sincerity and passion, following her dreams through engaging, life-experience discussions of ambition and goal-setting, an appeal to self-improvement, cautious tales of deleterious external influences, the value of family and friendships & other points of interest.
