Written for:  Carpe Diem #1127 penitence
The Road to Santiago, one of the most famous (and most  beautiful) pilgrimages has secrets, but also along the way you can find wonderful villages, cities and beautiful places like churches and cloisters. Somewhere along the Road to Santiago you encounter a village named Osbanos where you can find a church devoted to Felicia of Aquitaine. In that church built somewhere in the 12th century a murder took place.

conquering the long cold winter
a new life starts

Here is my attempt:

sister cries
red balloon floats in lake
brother feels remorse


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.

    There is always that element of wanting to protect a sister and in this case a feeling of empathy is outwardly apparent!
