Lighthouse being built, Red brick by
brick. Waiting for White light shining on mid
night Blue background, east
to west illuminating my way home.


  1. This has to be one of my favorites! I always feel awkward when I write free verse, but all of your poems come off so well-worded and vibrant. Love the colors, "Red White Blue" haha I get it. :)

  2. You are always very kind in all of your posts. I am the same way about sonnets...I am experimenting with minimalist sonnets and when I feel comfortable I will start posting. I feel very comfortable and easy with free verse. It is my first love. So much freedom.

  3. Haha "very kind" -- I am just being honest! :)
