    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

  • Poem: Her Lovely Smile

    Poem: Her Lovely Smile

    Her lovely smile has the power to compel poetry. At an age 17 years younger, she’s Mukti Masih – a published poetess, author and successful content writer from India. After a recent exchange, I wrote this poem as I drifted into a daydream

    Every time I see her smile
    Heaven shines a light on me
    Happy heart in sweet delight
    Chasing dreams of what could be
    
       On the rhythm of waves
       Rang a sound from her heart
       Where the waters of love
       Know no end, only start
    
       On a ship under sail
       Without map, simply stars
       And a warm summer breeze
       With acoustic guitars
    
       On a course to the east
       Currents carry and flow
       Is this only a dream?
       Perhaps, yes, I think so
    
    Were it not for many miles
    And the years, so far apart
    Both day and night - time to share
    Grand adventures of the heart

    Poem in Response

    After seeing Draadklossen (Dutch language, meaning Bobbins), a creative composition by my dear friend, Inge David – she’s a wonderful photographer from Belgium who specializes in black and white, especially interesting automotive and macro captures – I was inspired to write this poem…

    Haiku

    Threading clear insight
    Through her photographic eye
    Stitching life in stills

    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

  • Flashback Collage

    Flashback Collage

    It was 1992 and I had a giant stack of old magazines and a pair of shears. At random intervals over a few months, I removed pages from the soon be to discarded magazines, later cutting away excess to retain only each given image of interest. Following that, I used a can of spray-glue to create several small scenes, after which the individual pieces were combined with creative filler strips I made to achieve full coverage. The entire collage was adhered to a large piece of cardboard, with edges ruled and then trimmed.

    This is the finished product. It measured roughly 2-feet by 3-feet and was framed under glass, hanging on a wall for over twenty years. After a long period of sustained exposure to sunlight, however, the collage eventually became bleached with a blue tint.
