    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

    Throwback Thursday

    Here’s a photograph of me that I’m including for Throwback Thursday, despite the fact that I took it only yesterday. Does that count? Hmm…

    Anyway, the cool metal print on the wall behind me is an artwork entitled “Journey“, painted by my talented friend, Tiffany Arp-Daleo. Please visit her site, thanks!

    Poem in Response

    After reading “Just Simple Pleasures for Today“, written by a dear friend & southern poetess, Kym Gordon Moore – wherein she shares her positivity with a morning cup of gratitude – I was inspired to write this short poem in response…

    From a fountain that flows
    Streaming words which are wise
    Her heartfelt reflections
    Penned with love, no surprise

    Poem for a Friend

    By flowing hands
    Of humble heart
    Her mind creates
    Distinctive art

    She’s Karima Osterlund, an abstract artist who hails from Dublin, Ireland. I encourage you to visit her on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, to enjoy her extraordinary artworks and inquire about purchases. Thank you!

    Intuitive
    She paints by feel
    As lines and shapes transform

    A blank canvas
    Is brought to life
    Her gentle vision, warm

    Poem for a Friend

    I wrote this poem for a friend in India, Mukti Masih – a Christian, chai-totaler, published poetess, freelance writer, business Head of Content, and, someone who inspires me. I encourage you to visit her web site.

    If I were married
    With kids and a lot
    I’d wish for someone
    Who has what she’s got

    A thoughtful woman
    Beautiful and smart
    Who cherishes God
    Through faith in her heart

    So splendid the words
    In poems wrapped with love
    And hope, which she shares
    Endowed from above

    She’s a role model
    By the name Mukti
    Writing with impact
    Professionally

    Please visit her site
    Your company, too
    For content that works
    Perspective anew

    Poem for a Friend

    Often a source of inspiration, I wrote this poem for a friend – Michele Lee Sefton. A proficient poetic storyteller, dancer and photographer, I encourage you to visit her site to read and enjoy her creative works!

    Donning overalls
    Without any shoes
    To a rhythm set by spoons

    In a sun-shower
    Dancing wet with rain
    Bringing thunder to monsoons

    Arizonian
    By the name Michele
    She’s creative from the heart

    Crafting poetry
    Taking photographs
    She’s both beautiful and smart

    Very down to earth
    And I’m down with that
    Though know that she’s spoken for

    Were it different
    With her interest
    I’d be knocking at her door

    On a dusty road
    She’s a tumbleweed
    Her words flow, her spirit free

    Writing on retreat
    Northwest to southeast
    At Her Cottage by the Sea
