Sighs of Summer.001

Rosemary Nissen-Wade (my friend and one of the poets from She Too: Four Voices in Almost Harmony) writes lovely articles at the Poets Untied site. Two of the main articles she writes there are “The Living Dead” and “I Wish I’d Written This.” This week Rosemary’s “I Wish I’d Written This,” features haiga, haiku, and short verse poets that use words as well as images to bring life’s poetic moments alive.

My “Sighs of Summer” was fortunate enough sit side by side with other great poems and images.

Mountain High

Mountain High

A cloud hangs over the peak
like breath
fresh and beautiful.
A puff of white
as if blown from a peace pipe.

“String Me Along” was inspired by the Summerfest 2015 Gala performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto, No. 5 in D major, BWV 1050. Thank you to the performers of this and all of the pieces performed that night. It was a breath taking event!

Be the Light

Be the Light

Don’t let the weakness of others
define your strength.
Instead blaze a path that they can follow
until they find their own intensity.
