Poem in Response

Having read “Let Me Sing You a Lullaby” by the talented and beautiful Californian poetess, Annabel – wherein she recounts an appreciation of kindness, love and guidance, as received through the song of an angel – I was inspired to write this poem…

Like a message in a bottle
Sealed with a kiss and set adrift
Words flow from your heart, so lovely
– poetic bliss, shared as a gift

Vintage Beach Scene

This old photograph features a beach and lighthouse on Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula – Marquette, Michigan – which was formerly referred to as “Michigan Beach”. It’s a beautiful area, though somewhat cold (note the absence of people actually in the water). You can see prints and more in my galleries at Pixels and ArtPal.

Thanks for visiting!

Poem in Response

Having read “Muted Castle“, by talented poetess, dancer and dear friend Annabel – wherein she speaks to personal experiences of relocation, love and memories of her homeland – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

Through wind and rain
Your words retain
A soothing sound of love

Despite hardship
This distant trip
A godsend from above
