The poet Linda Buckmaster recently shared with me this wonderful poem. I asked her permission to pass it along to friends and family as a gift. Please know that in this holiday season and the year to come, I’ll be “keeping fire” for you.

    Thank you Phyllis. Your sharing the fires with us provides warmth and comfort to the spirit. So, I give you thanks for continuing to share in the way you do. Your years of poetry continue, too, to provide fire from their warmth and remembrance of what’s meaningful. We are not alone.
