Unlike Minded

“War Horse and Peace Horse” by Sue Halstenberg

While vivid color and appearance
is similar, minds and hearts
are not. One mind races
with plots and bloody hand
-prints to the apex–dominant,
dictator, conqueror–with
shrunken heart. The other
mind clearly sees people
coming together in harmony,
love, and laughter. Peace
prevails in open hearts.


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.
