Painted by a Friend

A welcoming face smiles in greeting, 

then sets in concentration 

as colorful strands  

cascade down her face –

a painter 

painted in cool colors

that sing of soft sands

and calming waves


painted in a face 

of contagious laughter 

and words like warm hugs

the scraping of hand on canvas 

erases the serious notes 

shifting them to a joyful melody 

that fills my heart

  • Together

    Filled with the sweet rays of possibility, 

    I celebrate the place I've found in this sun speckled spot. 

    Alongside me 

    those I've tied my soul to, 

    unafraid, for once, of judgement.
