Against a blue sky

Wide cups of butter yellow

Brightening the sun

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.

    Nice twist! We expect to read that the sun is brightening the buttercups, but you take us in the exact opposite direction.
