I am an artist and musician in Seattle. For most of my 60 years I have been a caregiver so much of my poetry is about my experiences with people who have disabilities.

Deeper Does The Heart Dwell

In an ocean of love I've come to learn

In lands where seeds have been grown for ages

Love Unique

In my hands
I hold your heart.
In them you place your trust.
Your hope.
Your love.
I cherish the ecstasy of communication.

My hands are my heart
Experiencing an expression of love
So unique....
