Dear Friends,

Happy Independence Day.


Independence Day - July, 4 2017

A Sleeping Giant roared
and fell asleep again.
Who knew
the Giant was a Fisher King,
wounded and awaiting
the kiss of the right question,
the compassionate query
from a healer-
What ails you?




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.
