    These morning photographs were taken in the Smoky Mountains along the new section of the Foothills Parkway, between Wears Valley and Townsend, Tennessee. In lieu of an overcast sunrise, I was pleased to capture these scenic landscape images.

  • 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
