“promise in red clouds”

Written for:  Carpe Diem Special #221 – Candy’s showcase first
“promise in red clouds

pray for rain upon
this thirsty patch of terra
promise in red clouds

butterfly follows
the scent and hue of flowers
feast on zinnia

flock of black birds
origami in the sky
fall migration

Here is my attempt:

white sky
bare limbs dance in high wind
shadows cast on first snow


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.
