Meet the writer: Katy Darlington
An emerald jewel lying at the feet
of the princess valley
Smooth as a polished stone
faceted with never-ceasing ripples
Rain laden clouds crowd around
the edges of this harbor of calm
Beckoning distant voyagers
to lay their anchors in safety
Before the stormʻs fury lashed
out on open seas.
A stronghold of serenity
A sailorʻs berth in an emerald valley.
