Dear Friends,

After a short hiatus, this is the first VISION AND VERSE of 2021;  I did the previous V&V  in December, 2020.  Doesn't that feel like a lifetime ago?  It was.

March brings the stirrings of Spring, the turning of the seasons and the beginning of the astrological new year; occasions on which I hope to send new creative prompts, so I'll keep this one brief.

It's International Women's Day and Women's History Month; occasions to acknowledge the goddess in every woman we encounter, every single day. In a time of vast food insecurity, where do you find nourishment?  Where do you see the Divine Feminine in your daily life? 


International Women's Day - March 8, 2021

I've fed them for centuries
A tourist snaps her photo
Memory woken
See Demeter's corn
Sprinkled across centuries









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.
