“Strawberry Skyline” written by William B. Burkholder and visualized by John Ecko.  Copyright © 2008.  All rights reserved.

I met William last year at a wonderful online poetry forum called the “Poetry Coffee House”.  Good folk there.  He wrote this poem and I was inspired to give it an image.   I’ve done several other collaborations over there with some of the finest poets online.  Perhaps I will have the opportunity to share more of these as well as introduce you to these wonderful poets.  If you’re looking for a place to share your poetry with good people,  I recommend you stop by the coffee house:
