The following are miniature poem portraits of three glorious creatures I am blessed to know as friends, and to be so regarded in return.
The Star — R.
Singularly bright, a veil thin for the Light within
a Lady fair born of the North Star, deft with love and free in thought
Ever transitioning, her mind turns in colors, words, movements
As stars shimmer through our atmosphere,
so she glistens through experience.
The Bird — L.
The Songbirds consider her Friend
she, so like them, flies over minds and souls
and sees where on the Path they lay; birds-eye view
Wisdom of the arial landscape picture and quickness of mind
are hers, and the birds’.
The Grecian Statue Figure — H.
Crowned with a weight she stands unyeilding
concise Grecian solidness carved with deeply thoughtful eyes; poised
To walk, to bear, is her destiny
determined, resolute she carries her burden as a braid
plaited ’round her golden head.
