Walled In

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads
Toads! Today in the Garden we are taking back WALLS.
Toads, please watch, listen, write, and share a poem on the subject of WALLS. And enjoy! 

Iron bars to keep
animals locked away,
for your entertainment.

Cage birds that cannot
fly free as far as they like,
so you can look at them.

Walls and fences do not
keep the world out,
they keep you in.


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.

    People often fail to notice that walls placed to limit others also constrain the ones building the wall.
