Mind Juggling

Written for:  Poetic Asides #465 – Write an exploration poem.
“There are so many places to explore, aren’t there? Explore the house, neighborhood, or city. Peruse the passions of the heart. Mine the mind to see what you’ll find. Explore new activities, music, or outer space. Or explore new forms of poetry.”

is crammed.
I believe
one section stays roped
off to handle anxiety,
while another spills out words I fancy, and non-words
that echo in my ears, often whispered by Alice, who beckons me into her world.
It really is no wonder that I have headaches at night, trying to figure out which part of         my brain to focus on. Must consult with Hatter.

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.

    Wishing you a Happy 2019!!!
