Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July 31:  Nothing Lasts Forever
“What did you wish lasted forever?  OR  Write a poem about either nothing, a last poem, or a forever poem.”

What gives meaning to your work,
great sense of satisfaction–passion.
Learning new skills, taking up
new hobbies, possessing a zest
for life–passion.
Remember that sizzling, tingly
feeling when you connected with
someone new?–passion.
Would that some genius
could bottle passion
in a fashion that would allow
it to last forever. Passion
is my lasting wish.

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.
