# # 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

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
