Written for:  The Twiglets #10 – the scent of lemon

Sweet, tart
lemon meringue pie.
Slices in glasses
of iced tea.
Smooth and creamy
lemon mousse
like silk on the tongue.


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.
