I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

These poems are works in progress and may be updated without notice. Nevertheless copyright applies to all writings here and all photos (which are either my own or used with permission). Thank you for your comments. I read and appreciate them all, and reply here to specific points that seem to need it — or as I have the leisure.

Verse Portrait 96. Writers' Group: Jean

Jean is new to the writing group.
She fits right in at once.

I'm glad to be joined by another 
poet. (It gets lonely.)

After her first session, 
she asks, 'Will you have me?'

Our question is, will she 
have us? Yes! She comes back.

Retired English teacher,
good proof-reader, witty, polite ...

When I read my widowhood poems
she understands exactly.

I see her getting every word,
feeling them. Oh, she knows!
