“Poetry is the song of the soul, the whispered reward to those who listen closely to the earth and all of her nuances.

It’s the eye in the minds of those who like to visualize the nimbus of light rimming the fuzzy borage or the halo of a bee,

or the soft, breathy breeze across your forearm hair on a warm summer night, heading into fall.

It’s the shard of glass embedded in your broken heart and the flush of lust rushing to your cheeks.

It’s details distilled into a dewdrop of essence

tasted on the tongue of a lover of words.” — Erika Burkhalter, 2022

Poetry, photography and traveling this beautiful earth are my greatest passions (besides for my kitties and my husband, of course!). Thank you for joining me on this journey.
