A Poem: Mary Anne 

A brilliant smile and a sunny garden
vibrating with living being things
Stones, magic stones, stepping stones
and heavenly flowers whose fragrance
grace the path on which life unfolds

A halo of sun around the head
here she comes, cradling a wretched
sign from the road that once had glory
but faded in the dream of time
like an extinct species

But then, under her magic brush
she breathed existence to it again
and from a life that was no more
she uncovered a mystery
to which she added new glory
A gift of art for those
looking for the unexpected
and the beautiful,
and the keepsake of memories.

That’s what she does,

Mary Anne
