Dear Friends:

May this Valentine’s Day bring you peace, balance, harmony, serenity and a little magic.

May you be surrounded by the people, places, things and experiences you love.

the mirrored surface gave back two mirror images;
our reflections had become the same,
almost androgynous.
My twin,

how we had changed.

Once handed out on street corners, it seemed right to update the broadside* form for our electronic age's street corner - the web. Welcome to A VISION AND A VERSE, an e-Broadside. Four to six times a year, I'll showcase a featured image and poem of mine, matching them on a seasonal or timely theme.

A seasonal celebration and a sharing of my creative process, I hope you'll want to subscribe to future issues. Click here for a free subscription

*A broadside is a large sheet of paper printed on one side only. Historically, broadsides were posters, announcing events or proclamations, or simply advertisements. Today, broadside printing is done by many smaller printers and publishers as a fine art variant, with poems often being available as broadsides, intended to be framed and hung on the wall.
