Proud Parent

Written for:  Poetics Aside 2019 PAD November Chapbook Challenge – Day 13
Write a persona poem.  Take on the persona of someone or something else.

I stand so stately–proud without a sound
except for my children who like rustling
’round a’flutter ’til they fall on ground.

They love dancing in a September breeze,
so vibrant in burnished reds, amber lights.
I watch them fondly, as all parent trees.

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.
