What The Head Holds

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – For Your Consideration:  Stony End
“TAKE 90 SECONDS AND LIST ITEMS YOU MIGHT FIND IN A CEMETERY.
AFTERWARD, WRITE A POEM/STORY THAT INCLUDES SOME OF THE ITEMS IN YOUR LIST.
YOUR SETTING IS ANYWHERE BUT IN A CEMETERY!”

Names and dates leave
blanks in my mind
more often than not
these days. Someone
has put up a gate
to block thoughts.

Scents, if not sense,
are still a joy–rain
with its earthiness,
stones stroked by
tears of the ocean.

Maybe losing some
facts along the way
makes life less
cluttered.

(dates, names, gates, stones, tears)

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.
