The Mare – while looking over old photos for some to illustrate existing poems, I found a photo that inspired me to write a new poem! It’s short, but evokes the moment.

The Mare There’s a mare there in the meadow, down in the grass. Warm in a sunny place. Rolling. Arching. Free from saddle. Alone in clover. All satin and lace.

Moonflowers – a short poem. All the photographs used to illustrate my poems are my own. The photos were not my inspiration, but I chose them from pictures I’ve taken over the years because they illustate the image or sentiment expressed.

Moonflowers Pale and purple hearts twine together under the moon like faint hopes firmly rooted. Tentative tendrils of shy passion weave a vital tune. The quiet deep song seeps slowly from their hearts and kisses the ghostly bloom.
