    Poem in Response

    Having read “Superstition Mountain“, written by the talented and lovely Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein she draws spiritual nourishment, perspective and resolve in visiting majestic mountains near Phoenix – I was inspired to write this poem…

    At golden hour
    Above the sands
    Old spirits join in song

    From mountain tops
    Upon the wind
    As one, with you – stand strong

    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
