The End Of April

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2017 Challenge – Day 30
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “The (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles could include: “The Poets,” “The Good Guys,” “The Bad Guys,” “The Last Thing She Said,” and so on. 

This poem disses,
dismisses, rainy weather.
See your silver
and raise you
golden sunshine.
Dry your puddles
of muddled earth
water, let diamonds
glint on sunny
sidewalks. This poem offers
a heart to poetry.  If not
for you, blue moods might
have drowned me in rain water,
and tears of frustration.
This poem wishes
all poets freedom
to write whatever
they please, and to always
stay dry. Bye-bye.

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.
