# # Enigma (on the poet Ms. P. Masterman)


I thought I saw a glimpse of her
As she zoomed around the bend
I swear I saw her wink and smile
But I could be mistaken

The more I try to capture her
The less I understand
The alien-poet-dragonfly
Patricia Masterman

    I love patti Masterman for two reasons (1) She writes wonderful poetry (2) She is so modest as her comment about this indicates LOL. Well done great piece about Patti._____________10 (Report) Reply

    Sonya, perhaps if we take a stroll through Patricia's poetry, we could both find a way to understand her gift. I am in awe of her poetry, yet know one needs time to look with depth. I am glad you thought you saw her wink and smile! Great poem. 10 love Karin (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
