Sunflower and Moonflower

Wide-eyed sunflowers

Spill their seeds from velvet eye

Scatter, spread new life

White moon flower folds

Petals closed, secret fortunes

Revealed in full moon.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
