Black spots on red

Ladybug on leaf

Climbs on my finger

Tickles my skin with joy

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.

    One would welcome that. It would be a nice feeling but not to the squeamish! Nicely Sara!
