Peach petals unfold
to open air, peonies protect
their furled secrets. White
pom-poms bounce and nod. A
calliope of colors
on their way to brighten
the light ’round people
who have lost their own.

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.

    Yeah. Flowers can do that as few things can. What you’ve written is short, simple, and lovely, Sara.

    I love peonies…one of my favorite blooms.
