Rumination is Wasteful

Written for:  Poetic Asides #486 – “Write a waste poem”

Used to think my poor choices a waste
of time I would never recoup.
Then realized I’d learned from each sour taste.
Used to think my poor choices a waste,
now I look back and smile–regrets chased.
Culled from each event, small pearls were scooped.
Used to think my poor choices a waste
of time I would never recoup.

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.
