Another asset is her eyes,
large domes upon...Read More

Hovering by the water spring,
We’d talk...Read More

shall freedom range to the applause of leaves
Tangency poised on the ballet of grass
such hurricane stanzas embrace
these burnished strings of delicate harp
or sigh replete in the arms of...Read More

Dance of the Damselfly
damselfly, life, nature,
Across the moor
To Wicken Fen
Where brume swallows all
Into mire, of the life,

Iridescent gossamer winged flyer
Damselfly dance into the sun higher
Filling us with fervor as she hovers
Soaring predator...Read More
