    Poem for a Friend

    This haiku was inspired by a lovely woman and good friend, Annabel. She’s a professional dancer & choreographer, and also a gifted poetess. I encourage guests to visit her web site to enjoy her creative writings – thanks very much!

    She dances on clouds
    Melting snow from mountain peaks
    Cascading beauty

    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: Inside a Dream

    Poem: Inside a Dream

    I started this poem early last evening, later finishing it in the dream of a beautiful woman I know…

    I stepped inside a dream, intense
    Night dark, to slip away
    To hold her near
    Beneath the stars
    And love her as she lay

    Asleep, then not, and back again
    We tossed across the sand
    On moonlit beach
    Wet in the waves
    Two hearts, one love at hand

    The rapture of a thousand stars
    Cast bright, forevermore
    Warm sky aglow
    To welcome back
    Our meeting at the shore

    Poem in Response

    Having read “Lend Me Your Poem” by talented poetess, dancer and friend Annabel – wherein she speaks of life, light and love – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

    Lend me a pen
    And I’ll write you a poem

    Lend me your hand
    Under starlight we’ll roam

    Aloft of clouds
    As light as a feather

    Burgeoning hearts
    Drawn closer together
