We exercise our brains in discipline
here where our daily twenty lines abide.
Melissa built this home where we can glide
our thoughts to poems, stories, and to pin
them to the screen for others to peruse.
I thank Melissa. What community
she has constructed where I love to see
the photographs that take me on a cruise
to other places, and through others’ eyes.
An artists’ meeting place, I call it, home
for those in U.S., India, or Rome.
Each morning when I come…a new surprise.
