I saw a preview of a new TV-show on History channel. “Forged in Fire”, it’s a kind of competition between hammer smiths who are challenged to create ancient weapons like samurai swords.

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.
