Woman, Grown

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1121, Growth

[…] “There I was, being reborn, wanting to be bathed both inside and out by the immense sun that was shining and that was asking me to continue to grow more.” […] (Source: The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho)

to the blue sky
I reach for the bright sun
feeling alive

Here is my attempt:

who is that woman?
an unfamiliar face
in the mirror
she has seen many suns
said goodnight to many moons


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.
