I am delighted to have a poem entitled 'Amaryllis' in the current issue of The Burning Bush II (link included below). It was written some time ago so it was a pleasant surprise to discover a photograph of the two blooms which inspired my response as I looked through old pics on my lap top this weekend. The image does not do justice to the radiance of the amaryllis as they lit up the kitchen in our old house on Nuns Island, Galway on a dull Winter's morning, but hopefully the poem takes up where the photo leaves off and articulates something of their impact. Enjoy both image and words!
