Unseen Emotions

“Breakable”  (posted by Kerry)

“I wondered if I might inspire others to return to the comfort of pen and paper. I do not expect you all to rush about looking for an ancient bottle of ink (like I did) but I would love to see a photo of your work written in your own handwriting, or some kind of graphic presentation of your poem.”



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.

    Delighted to see you really do own a purple pen!!

  2. Oh, these unseen emotions can be so heavy on the spirit and the self. Their discovery can indeed break it all down. That “sink into a pit” resonated with me. Well penned!
