Write a poem that includes your birthstone.

In seas of aquamarine
I swim
and spin

dazzling, sparkling, glittering
in sunlight
in moonlight.

I am a marine animal
bathed blue
whiskers askew.

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.
