Written for:  Carpe Diem #987, Portugal


waves come and go
hidden between mountains –
love on the beach

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Without asking, the wind
Sheds the flowers on the ground . . .
I never dared.

© Afrânio Peixoto (1876 – 1947)

On the cold slab
says goodbye to spring
a withered rose

© Fanny Luíza Dupre (1911 – 1996)

early fall
full of herself
the first moon

© Alice Ruiz

Here is my attempt:

sliding down steps
imprinted in shadows
spring rain


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.
