A Wave

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – “Write Here.  Write Now.”
(posted by Paul John Dear)
“Write me a piece about living in the moment . . . that place where time stops.”

“Forever is composed of nows.”~Emily Dickinson.

A wave is rolling toward the shore,
only this and nothing more.

(with a nod to Edgar Allan Poe)



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.
