Remember me as a time of the day–
see me as twilight
exploding in the sky.
I rest between

a spark.

See me as twilight
thundering in the sky.
Purple passion,
an aperitif to night,
absinthe

See me as twilight–
remember

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.

    I love your image of twilight – the pause between light and dark. Good image of twilight
    as the aperitif to night.
