Sunflowers in Tuscany

Evening breeze
the exhausted sunflowers
bow their heads

Daniele Brancati

Night flowers
I catch their transiency
in a selfie

Donatella Nardin

Falling stars
looking for a clover
I forget the sky

Maurizio Petruccioli

Here is my attempt:    


Sailing along canal
from Venice to Murano

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.
