Written for:  Carpe Diem Special #223, Candy’s 3rd – “Silvery Moonbeams”

silvery moonbeams
reflected in still water
diamonds on the pond
a child humbly born
amid wars and poverty
our hope for peace

blossoms long spent
only brown pods remain
a feast for finches
silver jewels
on flamboyant green spikes
frosted grass

Here is my attempt:

In depths of ruin
land destroyed, people gone
a stubborn weed rises

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.
