Trapped on a small
strip of land, he
was left to fend
for himself. Waves
of loneliness
and despair rendered
him listless. How
would he survive?

He is now entrusted
with a grant
to share
his written story,
to tell what
he had endured
while still on
the island. People
want to know
the details.

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.
