Written for:  Carpe Diem #1043, Emptiness


nothing fills
the emptiness of the question
where are they?

the empty nest
my daughter’s house
after the wedding

© Jane Reichhold

boundless world
the tranquil gardens of the temple
I empty my mind
to make room for another thought
emptiness is cool

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

mother sits on swing
rocks back and forth on Fall night
looks at empty swing


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.
