Michael Garmash

I simply love the work of Ukraine-born Michael Garmash and his wife, Inessa. You can find him all over the internet; if you want to see more, here's a nice sampling. His women are gorgeous, but I enjoy the children of his Disney series.

My All-Time Favorite Autumn Poem

 photo WildGeeseHeader.jpg
Something told the wild geese
It was time to go,
Though the fields lay golden
Something whispered, "snow."

Leaves were green and stirring,
Berries, luster-glossed,
But beneath warm feathers
Something cautioned, "frost."

All the sagging orchards
Steamed with amber spice,
But each wild breast stiffened
At remembered ice.

Something told the wild geese
It was time to fly,
Summer sun was on their wings,
Winter in their cry.
