Artist – Andrea Clarkson
I’ve played in orchestras for more than sixty years now and I remain in awe of string players, especially cellists. I wrote a small poem recently inspired by my decades of admiration for the instrument and the wonderful people who play it. I thank editor Jayne Jaudon for including it in Your Daily Poem.
I write few poems and most of them go through years or decades of revision before I try to share them. “Winter Sky” popped into my head a week or so ago and I found nothing to change. I thank YDP editor Jayne Jaudon for thinking so too! Here’s the link: http://www.yourdailypoem.com/listpoem.jsp?poem_id=3256

Chip Kosty and I squeezed in a quick camping trip to Sequoia in June. We hiked, cooked and , of course, visited the big trees. I spent some time sitting on a bench, taking the place in and some good words came to me. I shared them with editor Jayne Jaudon and she shared them on Your Daily Poem. Here’s the link:

An old friend passed away some years back. She was born into a South County pioneer family and, though a world traveler and Berkeley educated, her deepest affection was for her ranch and all the rural folks who make their living from a none too gentle land. I tried to show a little bit of that in this poem. I thank editor Jayne Jaudon Ferrer for including it on her excellent poetry page!
