She left me enlightened With her “Heart’s Imagination” Taught me about love In the ink of “Melting Point” She gave me a whisper of insight Within the breath of “O April” And sang to my soul and spirit On the wings of “Germination” She colored my heart in hues Of lavender with her psalms Who spoke to me of hope and love Joy birthed in “My Iridescent Garden” She illuminated my soul’s faith With “Soulful Journey of Shooting Stars” And breathed pain into my nostrils On the tone of “Heartbreak Hill” She graced my thoughts with light When she penned “The Virtue of Motion and Life” I felt the waves of her pensiveness In the words of “Mirror of a Son’s Eyes” She left my heart in bright adoration With “Rebirth of the Third Angel” And encouraged me to listen to silence On the reflections of “Wire Walker” She delights, enlightens, flavors my thoughts In amber, scarlet, sapphire and emerald All the colors of inspiration and sensitivity Inviting me to listen to the hopes within me She inscribes a bit of enchantment through me With her vivid portrayals of imaginations So loving and graceful, like psalms that grant me A light to guide – a hope to ignite my faith She is a writer who has left me with appreciation For the empty pages that draw her in And bring me such beauty, light and laughter Love that points me to a heart that is perceptive A woman of grace and beauty and wonder Polishes her poems with flavors of amazement Inspirations so thrilling, so revealing, they take me Through the poem into places I’ve only dreamed of Her poetry holds a trace of stardust, a flame Of expectation, a promise of illumination Fulfillment and pleasure, satisfaction with words That brightens lives and leaves elegance wherever it flows In her poetry… there is hope for words!
