Christ in the Wilderness by Stanley Spencer

All the world
seems to have shrunken.
I wonder,
have I slept
days, months, years? I am not fit
for this fragile life.

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.
