Poem for a Zebra Long wing

I watch

you dip and fly

dancing, leaf to leaf,

taking ease any place you land-

eluding my lens as if I mean to steal your soul.

Your visage burns into my memory

I have no designs on your soul-

just an image to sustain me

through winter’s coming chill.

Poetess, memoir writing, essays about life; these are the things I write about. I also love to cook, so you'll likely find a recipe or two in this blog. I am passionate about Nature and family, so from time to time I will share pictures-with or without poetry.
