water, water

Written for:  The Twiglets #54 – “water, water”

water, water,
Quick!
I’m melting

tranquil waters
where trees grow
in reflection

land cracks
where water fears to tread

water, water,
croaked the dying
plant

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.
