Growth

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Autumn PAD – Day 5 – CORNUCOPIA
“We’ve all seen the symbol of harvest time in the cornucopia (Horn of Plenty). It is a gathering of things related in some way that marks the success of an endeavor. Write it literally or go out on a limb and express your abundance! Maybe take each item and equate it to an aspect of life. You’ve got plenty with which to work.”

Leave them alone
this season of Spring,
as they begin maturation.
Roots growing, fruit trees
budding, and vines
entangling–all in preparation
for Autumn’s harvest,
a plentiful horn
of every color.

 

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.
