Indigo Invaders

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2, Prompt #229 – In The Mood (not yourself).
“Write a mood or anti-mood poem.”

Indigo invades my veins
these days–the ones
I do not know
if I am capable
of getting through

to a lighter shade.
I long for rosy
hues of days end
or perhaps just the end
of day.

With night comes might,
imagination awakens,
and there is a stillness
pervading, decluttering
my mind. Twisted wires

straighten–smooth, and
shiny. I can walk through
their neat rows, and end up
on roads never taken, colored
paths of my own creation.

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.
