This month’s word list:

… or any others you choose from the quote.

As a reminder: select 3 or more of these words (or reasonable variants).

Sensuous notes fill
the room. Serious saxophone
sounds nourish hungry souls.
Touches of blue lift them
from gravity’s pull. Able
to escape the realm of work,
friends beam at each other.
In this aspect, music is all

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.

    I LOVE the ending. Especially how you squeezed out “in-compassing.” Brilliant. Music is definitely my in-compass too.


  7. Oh, yes, it is! As is your work!
