This New Life

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - InForm Poet:  Tri-Fall
"The Tri-fall consists three 6-line stanzas, for a total of 18 lines.
The rhyme scheme is a,b,c,a,b,c and meter for each stanza is as follows: 6/3/8, 6/3/8.
This form requires little to no punctuation and can be written on any subject matter."

Anxiously I ponder
this new life–
businesses closing left and right
Praise those first responders
midst of strife
All searching for a healing light

Apartment houses vacant.
sales of homes are down,
every part of life affected.
Violence becomes blatant
people drown
in storms, others are infected.

What will Autumn bring us–
vibrant hues
of tree's apparel, new bird song?
Distraction is a plus,
before news
of Flu season coming 'fore long.

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.
