  • Boat in a Bottle

    Boat in a Bottle

    I’ve always wondered how a sailboat could fit inside a glass bottle, not to mention an entire ocean? This photograph features a vintage round-bottom bottle from my collection, and you can enjoy my collage on a variety of great gifts, prints and apparel in the following shops:


  • Poem in Response

    Poem in Response

    There are times I feel I should refrain
    From the sounds that drum as rhyme
    Yet, your beauty shines through poetry
    Like your smile, your words sublime

    Having read “Twilight’s First Blush“, written by a lovely poetess and friend from the Valley of the Sun, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein she conveys a romantic recollection at dawn & shares her welcomed sense of humor – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

    On a late night cruise
    To a rendezvous
    Just seventeen miles or so

    It’s the magic hour
    When night fades to day
    And the cock begins to crow

    In romantic waves
    Rhythm fills the air
    Glances cast amorously

    Soon, a warm embrace
    On the edge of love
    Two hearts sing in rhapsody

    Til the morning draws
    Colors peach to blue
    As faint starlight blinks farewell

    Cheers, to drift once more
    On this desert sea
    Over sand and under spell

  • Poem: Her Lovely Smile

    Poem: Her Lovely Smile

    Her lovely smile has the power to compel poetry. At an age 17 years younger, she’s Mukti Masih – a published poetess, author and successful content writer from India. After a recent exchange, I wrote this poem as I drifted into a daydream

    Every time I see her smile
    Heaven shines a light on me
    Happy heart in sweet delight
    Chasing dreams of what could be
    
       On the rhythm of waves
       Rang a sound from her heart
       Where the waters of love
       Know no end, only start
    
       On a ship under sail
       Without map, simply stars
       And a warm summer breeze
       With acoustic guitars
    
       On a course to the east
       Currents carry and flow
       Is this only a dream?
       Perhaps, yes, I think so
    
    Were it not for many miles
    And the years, so far apart
    Both day and night - time to share
    Grand adventures of the heart
