  14. Hi Tess - a beautiful painting. I love Redon. I confess to having used an older poem - but spent a great deal of time (ha!) trying to get an audio version - a villanelle. Will check out yours and others. I have no R.D. k.

  17. Tess -- I have a 'store' of Redon images to screen-save me periodically. Glad to have come on this image to connect with. Just notice you had one last week using (a bloated) Welles in Touch of Evil. That too may work on me.

    Thanks for being here so reliably!

  23. Thought I would try to do a role reversal-type of personae, a Knight-errant character for my new LOTR-type novel coming to an Amazon/Barnes-Noble-type publication near you. Wish me luck?

  27. Thank you for hosting, Tess.

    I am struggling with time as I began a new job a few weeks ago and things are rather hectic! My offering was composed while burning the midnight oil. I thank everyone for their comments. I will eventually get to your blogs and will read your poems.
