Charcoal Junctures-DEBBIE GUZZI-from white-filled light to light-less black meandering in the velvet shades of gray?


A Sepia Collection-CARRIE RICHARDS-Oh yes, I've seen a glimpse or two, in photographs, I have a few; I see a robust man, in yellowed hues,


just a story-SHARON WEIMER-the sun would shine so hard making the tall golden grasses wave to her


when colors collide-SEAN KELLY-never mind , I'm color blind , can't tell my pink from blue. My amber , mauve or lilac could be turquoise , white or brown,


From Charmaine: "a dream within a dream/meadows of yellow buttercups/and fields of evergreen" ...


From Celene: "I shut doors to blue and green eyes/ and I saw only brown, I saw one smile, I loved one man."

Thank you to those poets who had honored their fellow poets in this unique Easter Egg Hunt. Please continue to do so - here or on the previous blog referred to above. I hope to see many more poets and their work highlighted. Thank you.

    I forgot to mention one of my top-top fav writers!!! Our dear Catie!! "I'll wrap a heart shaped box for you,/filled with oxygen and bit of nitrogen too/I'll wrap it up real pretty in blue." ... and Elizabeth Wesley: "I have smelled the heady scent/Where blue hyacinths commune." ... and Nette: "While curls of tossed hair perfumes air of bay/I feel the blue night of you/Blue night so, so new." ...

    From Deborah: "We ate the small fruits in the grass/sweet ones red and blue/Oh yes the joys found as time passed/were there for most of you." (So Swift the Days Will Pass). From Cyndi: "Maroon festoons tall maple trees, grey squirrels chatter while blue jays play"(Autumn Colors). From PD: "Mommy now what am I going to do when I want to talk and be with you?/Now who's gonna take care of me when I'm feeling blue?" (Gracie's Prayer)

    Yes, it is a gem. It is something that I just cannot bring myself to do: reading my poems at a poetry recital. I love Brian's voice - it suits the poetry reading perfectly :-)
