This is the first thing I've written in a very long time sis.  You and daisy inpired and encouraged me.   Thank you!
Love you!   I admit also that I did it for Gary.  I feel shame and sadness...he was so prolific...I knew I had to try.

Both of you have vision that I wish I could have.  I long for the day that I can pull from my heart and have it make sense on paper.  I haven't written for a very long time either.  Practice, write every day, whether good or bad, and hang around with people who are like-minded.  Sounds like what we need to jump start the flow.  I love you both dearly ... so happy to see you again.

Both of your poems are amazing!  This is a miracle and I'm overcome!  I love you both!

If either of you, daisy or elise, can upload a new picture, that would be great. I've tried and tried and I can't get one to show up in the post. I get the notification that I'm using a fake path. xx

The susurrus of petals
floats down around us
You lean into me and ask,
“What’s susurrus?”
I whisper,
“The sound of petals brushing
each other in the breeze –
touching softly in
Communion.

Love the perspective on all of them.  Takes me back to "The Poetry Circle"  ... I think that's why I love this thread so much.

under a Sicilian sun
humid in Darwin
sailing Ha Long bay
surfing Bondi
soaking up the heat
Florida next stop
Cuba, yes Cuba
don’t forget Cuba
the sun shines hot on
lots of old, not much new

dancing in the warmth
lights
the fires of
possibility

I heard it's hot in Texas too
