As I Saw Boulder

 As I Saw Boulder

Those retro hipster streets, crowded with bohemian images,

abutting the mountains grand, recollecting peace and hippie love.

One New Age store replete with Occult books and Tarot cards 

intended to teach and to guide.

The street musicians’ chattering guitars play folk (Dylan, Baez, Mitchell)

or perhaps the acid rock (Hendrix, Cream, Doors) one era dug.

Another New Age store that sells incense, that spiritual return

to the time when the peace pipe filled the air with smells

of myrrh and burning grass.

Street dancers and magicians with magical movement

to keep the groove alive and remembered.

Linda Imbler


Examples of Linda’s poetry and a listing of publications can be found at  When not writing, Linda is an avid reader, classical guitar player, and a practitioner of both Yoga and Tai Chi.  In, addition, she helps her husband, a Luthier, build acoustic guitars.  Linda enjoys her 200-gallon saltwater reef tank wherein 

resides her almost 20 year old yellow tang.  A retired teacher, who began writing in earnest in January, 2015, Linda believes that poetry truly adds to the beauty of the world.  Much of this beauty she feels can be found in the night sky and, on warm nights, her telescope serves as inspiration for this belief. Linda’s self-published poetry collections include “Big Questions, Little Sleep,”  “Lost and Found,”  and “Red Is The Sunrise.” She has two e-books published by Soma Publishing; “The Sea’s Secret Song,” and “Pairings,” a hybrid eBook of short fiction and poetry.  Her third e-book, That Fifth Element, will be published by Soma Publishing in late September.
