"Write a list poem:  Twelve Good Reasons To Sleep In"

- No morning appointments, no place I have to be

- So cuddly under the covers

- I can listen to softly falling rain

- One dog at foot of bed, other on floor next to my side.
  Acrobatic skills needed to get up.

- Looking out bedroom window, I find myself eye level with snow

- It is still dark out

- Room feels freezing cold

- Dental appointment I could later claim to have forgotten

- State of the world may have worsened

- Because I can

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.
