Sunset on the Pacific

The poetic and artistic reflections from 2 psychiatrists serve as a good reminder to us all.

POETRY FOR INCLUSION

My friend and fellow psychiatrist Ilse Wiechers, MD, MPP, MHS, took this picture, "Sunset on the Pacific." It serves as a good reminder for us to find that inner light that shines throughout the trials and tribulations of life.

I was inspired to write the following poem.


A seagull landing

Sunset hues amalgamate

Ocean reflects light
