Home Improvements

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #275 – “What’s New?”
“We stand on the crest of a new year, in a new decade. Both causes to celebrate. Everything becomes a fresh new start to everything you aspire to! So we are asking you, “What’s new?” We’re writing “new” poems today. Not a poem that hasn’t been written before, but a poem about something new. So, let’s write a poem. So, what’s new?”

An even year
is in the wings
singing songs
of change.  An end
to egregiousness
and mendacity
needs to occur.

Each tiny move
we make to help
preserve the earth
is of great import,
especially to the
newly birthed
who deserve
a future.



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.
