This and That

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #240

Words:  enough, cross, jump, mist, kiss, threat, bell, run, scarlet, touch, group, dream

A kiss in the mist,
a touch in a dream

A jump high enough
to ring the tower’s bell

A threat of scarlet
in the cross-hairs of war

A group of clowns
running for office

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.
