Ice Receding

Geese on Frozen Lake

Geese on Frozen Lake

ice slowly recedes

geese explore the warming lake

sunshine lights the scene

winter’s debris now in view

cleansing rain to follow soon


Geraldine of “My Poetic Path”


On round patch of ice

geese all face same direction

seeking out wisdom

Feel sun of fading winter

They will wait for lake to warm

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.
