Breath stops
Heart leaps

Phyllis Wax writes in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan.  A lover of warm weather, she watches the snow come and go, waiting and hoping for spring. From the window in front of her desk, she observes an abundance of migrating birds, several generations of turkeys, and the occasional fox, deer, and raccoon. Some of those make their way into her poetry. Phyllis has read her poems on the radio, in coffee shops, in libraries and bars, and her work has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies.

Phyllis: you've given a clinic on the power of poetry in brief. Wonderful treatment of the very thing I viewed last night from my window looking east.

Your words hold the picture I saw last night. I watched a wash of red move across the moon in an Arizona sky. A Renoir painting in slow motion, yes breath stops and heart leaps. Thanks Phyllis

Quite the eclipse last night, eh?--made to last a bit longer through these few words.
