radiance hemmed in?

fenced in
she was

with such a tiny place
to dwell

yet prominent
in the whole of the scene

and anyone just happening along
could tell
the spell she breathed 

was beauty

* This striking white iris reminded me of cherished friends and family through the years, who experiencing what would appear to be “a hemming in”….or a “narrowing of influence and opportunity,” made use of their undesired circumstances to exude an even brighter radiance. I appreciate and applaud them all.


  1. Your eye and sensitivity to the singular in your environment has always astounded me. And then you blend it all together with the fine craftsmenship of the written word. Just love it Terry!
