  1. It is a delight to have one's passion known and shared.

    The voice of line,
    form and structure
    is heard
    And the beauty conveyed,
    expressed
    in heartfelt word.

    As you may choose to peruse APOGEE Poet, you will find responses to the works of masters who speak to soul's sensibilities.

    Thank you for all you share.

    Best,

    Rose Marie
