Got The Wink

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub – Quadrille #68, “Winkel, Winkle, Little Poem”
(posted by WhimsyGizmo)

Today, I would like you to pen a poem in the WINK of an eye.
That’s right. Give us a poem of exactly 44 words, including some form of the word “wink.” You can use it as any form of speech you choose (or invent.)


I like to think
I’ve got the wink,
a mere quick blink
to blush you pink
as a sweet Cosmo drink.
We may be on the brink
of a good thing. Don’t shrink
away ‘cause I use purple ink.
I believe we’re in sync.

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.
