Holly Hunter is a very talented poetess, beautiful woman and dear friend hailing from Florida, and I encourage you to visit her web site, House of Heart, to enjoy her creative writings.
Having read her recent work, “Water for Lovers“, I was inspired to write this poem in response…
Weightless in the waters of Europa, we shall gaze upon Jupiter, inspired and breathless with awe. Then, pursue a trail of stars as we indulge in grand equatorial vistas of Mars, along the Tharsis Rise. Sojourners, we’ll return to sink our feet into the sands of Jost Van Dyke and wet our whistles at the Soggy Dollar Bar, as the Caribbean Sea glistens with life before our eyes, calling us to swim again.
