Back To Innocence

Written for:  Six for Wednesday-1
from Brenda Warren & Elizabeth Crawford Katch

Words: wonder, pushed, soul, wrong, clear, deep

Sometimes I pass an iron fence,
and the deep scent takes me back
to playing iron tag.

I look and listen to the wrongs
in this world, and always wonder
what my father would say. He was
a kind soul, with a clear sense
of fairness.

If he were here now, and I was playing
iron tag, he would not have to be pushed
to join in.

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.
