Pagosa Springs Artists

Every Person


needs to be succored by another,
needs affirmation, the unrequited,
unearned love of a mother

Everybody wants the same goods,
has the same goals, the same
weaknesses to conquer

Every heart longs for a treasure
in which to invest, another soul
to nourish, to harvest
