She Evokes a Soul for Winter--By Jean Colonomos--United States

She Evokes a Soul for Winter

Fireplace warm, teddy bear tender,
she speaks of her husband and children
as they course through her being
where there’s no beginning or end.
It is my daughter’s compassion
that wraps me in blanket fields,
in electric currents connecting me to
light pouring in.

Jean Colonomos began her career as a member of the Martha Graham Dance Company. She then wrote about it for various publications in New York City during the 1960s and ‘70s.  She’s been published in over 50 publications. Her most recent book is ART FARM.  For more, visit
