    Poem in Response

    After reading “The Best Gift“, written by the talented and beautiful poetess, Annabel – wherein she shares finding happiness through love and faith along her journey from home – I was inspired to write this poem…

    The gift of self love
    To make oneself whole
    Will reap great rewards
    Enliven your soul

    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

  • Stepping Back

    Stepping Back

    It’s like I’m outside at a circus, looking through a dirty glass window, watching all the kids having fun inside…

    Climbing tall ladders to reach high wires. Pulling a lion’s tail. Stepping on the oversized shoes of clowns.

    In time, I turned back to pass between bended fence posts and begin my journey home – 10,000 steps.

    Poem

    A Distant Time

    Before I go
    I’ll skip a stone
    Rings counted in the wake

    Look back and smile
    Before I go
    Reflections on the lake

    The time has come
    Beyond the fields
    My journey starts today

    No wish to wait
    The time has come
    Forthwith and underway…

    A house of clouds
    Above the hill
    Its door propped open wide

    I say my prayers
    Then cross my heart
    Up stairs, to step inside
