Written for:  Carpe Diem Special #224, Candy’s 4th-Yellow School Bus

blue dragonflies dart
along the edge of a pond
playing summer games
yellow school bus
rumbling down the street
small faces framed
behind the square windows
longing for summer days

wind in the pines
swirls upward to heaven
whispered prayers

viewing festival
standing amid pink blossoms
woman’s beauty fades

Here is my attempt:

outdoors, wild wind roars
winter bellows arrival
sun streams through windows


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.
