Artist, member of Ontario Society of Artists, teacher, environmentalist, traveler and free spirit.

For Krystyna:

Holding a plush blue bear, she sings a lullaby
“I had known you,” her eyes say
The white camellia in her dark hair
like a silent spell, breathing.
The glimmer of sunshine has flown toward her
like a dragonfly landing on her skirt,
she tries to pick it up
on her way to the sky…

Eva Kolacz

You will always be in our hearts mom, grandmother, sister and aunt.
