Thanks Glynn. Your list fills my Saturday with wonder. And I appreciate the inclusion of my piece 'Dream'. Your support makes a world of difference.

Wow, thanks! And you're right. Writing a sestina is a full-time job in itself! :)

You cause us to stop and see.
Not just to look.

The consideration
that you write
brings that special
light to shine in
a way
that we can see
wonder
we can see
