Happy Tuesday everyone! I am submitting a new poem that I also submitted to dVerse Poetics for today. I always enjoyed Cat Stevens when I was a teen.

Hi, Friends... Moonshadow seemed the perfect song for our eclipse frenzy here in the USA. :) I'm slow in getting around this week but AM getting around. Love to everyone!

Cat Stevens is my ever-favourite artist. Nothing to share today, but only much gratitude for all who have made their poetry available for another amazing reading experience.
