Character

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #473

Words:  face, flex, loon, tense, times, joy, bloom, moon, present, wrinkle, reflect, overcome


Wrinkles ironed
into your face
reflect tense
times–past
and present. 
Do you feel
a need to overcome
them by mourning
like a loon, or
purchasing products
that promise rose
-bloom of youth.  Seek
out craggy face of
a midnight moon; makes
you swoon.  Joy jumps
into your life when
you moon-gaze.  Positively
flexuous, that's you!

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.

  1. That is such a positive message! People always want a quick fix and sometimes maybe just looking at things in a new way could be the simplest fix of all.

    Sadly so much more of us doesn’t show on the surface, we realize that when we get older!
