The Race

Written for:  Poetics Aside #521 – Write a half-way poem.

Rivulets
of sweat slick her face.
Heart races,
feet pumping.
She sprints past the half-way mark
hell-bent to finish.

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.
