One thought on “Little Desert Flower by Michael Lee Johnson

  1. I have never heard -blue sorrow- so well expressed. I felt it as I read the poems text at the end, just coming off the leaves of your flower. The visual montage and most especially your voice adds so much to the emotion and history of the piece. A true poetic experience. Franco Esposito
