Poetry There are a number of poets among the Ovi team, so we have gathered the together here.
| ||Coyote Whisperer|
In a moment of absolute abandon...
warmth from the sun's first rays
caress bare skin
| ||School Time|

Under a clear blue sky

And whirring machines.
| ||Firefly Dreams|

to a new location on the other side.
| ||The Potter's Wheel|
A bright green grapevine
Hung over a Potter's
Workshop on the
Island of Naxos,
And the purple grapes
Glowed over the finished
