We’re All Friends Here

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July 27:  Sage Advice
“We’ve all heard of words to live by. Either a profound quote, or a motivating article. Maybe a parent or grandparent has given you good advice once. What was that advice you received that has held great significance to you? Use that as your inspiration for your poem.

Alternatively, sage is a spice. Write a poem to spice up your life that contains the name of a spice in the title.”

Sage and parsley
go leaf in leaf,
joining up with
rosemary if they have
the thyme. When they
are bundled together,
they get under the skin
of a turkey. The turkey,
not having any zip
of its own, appreciates
the addition.


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.
