Write a poem in the same sense, tone, and spirit as Etsujin

covered with cherry blossoms
if I could die right now
in this dream of mine

Sky violet, seagulls calling
Eyes closed, I sleep in mist

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.
