Debora Short


It began with a lovely meal
Scrumptious Mahi-Mahi
Fried green tomatoes
Picturesque Lake Douglas
Distant red clay banks
Flanked with art-kissed cedars
Water-crafts of every sort
Filled with freedom’s revelers
A Tuscan-like sunny
Love of life
Dancing on glistening
Waters of rural life
Thirty years
Of memories
Play up on
Our private mountaintop
Star blessed
Drive - in theatre
John Deere Gator
Parked and witnessing a
Heavenly red, white & blue
Sparkling salute
