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
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
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…
Threading clear insight Through her photographic eye Stitching life in stills
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
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.
