Lunar Caress

gentle solace
for all that’s
within us just
as we are 
in the holy,
of earthen

  1. Just received a copy of Daryl's fine book--of course his writing as always, provocative and accessible.
    Was equally impressed with Cholla Needles print job: book sized for easy transport in pocket purse or backpack, cover well done in matte finish and interior pages easy on the eyes, quality ecru finish.
