I think of all my childhood toys
metal slinky,
wood tinker toys
color form shapes

Board games too numerous to count
like Candyland
Chutes and Ladders
Clue, and Scrabble

Grew up at a good time of life
baby boomer
fun neighborhood
Good Humor man


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.
