Meet Again, Breathe Again

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2  For Your Consideration – “From the Offices of
Keats, Shelley & Rabinowitz”
“Channel your favorite classic Romanticist poet and make your case (write your poem) including this line:

” . . . the rouged embers languish long after midnight knell . . .”

The rouged embers languish long
after midnight’s knell. Time
for us to meet again,
breathe again, climb a wall
of golden flowers casting
our shadows, like long-legged
dancers. Let us climb higher
and surreptitiously snatch
the stars from the heavens,
to light the coming Spring.

(after Pablo Neruda)

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.
