perfect silence

Written for:  The Twiglets #56 – “perfect silence”

is the hushed snowfall

is the moment after television screen grows dark

is two people comfortable with not speaking

is the O-shape of a child’s mouth when surprised

is being alone with your thoughts



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.
