Poetry Persists

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July Covid-19 P.A.D – Day 7 – “Reason To Cheer”
“How good is it that we can “come together” to write and comment here and on other poetry pages without restrictions or regulations? (OK, there is one demand we make here… Have fun!) Write about an aspect of poetry that keeps you coming back to write more. Let’s see where this will take you.”

Forms are a challenge
some of which I can’t manage,
but some are fun–
the triolet is one.

I can write in any voice
I want to use. It’s my choice.
Fly with fantasy,
unravel a dream’s meaning.

Subjects are limitless,
length is anyone’s guess.
Poetry is freedom,
its words, an art medium.


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.
