Summer Softens

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Exercise in Poetic Thought #3
“The third step in our poem building exercise is upon us. Today, we put some parts together. Choose one of your titles written in exercise #2. Now, starting with that title and nudge, write your poem. BUT…. you CANNOT use the original line that the title is based upon in your poem. You must fit one of your OTHER lines into your poem. Make it work.” 

All around us,
bright hues–
little girls
in hot pink
t-shirts, opening
buds of lavender,
burgundy grapes popping
with juices, mango
smoothies sliding
down your throat–all
things that make finding
the sweetness easy.

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.
