Closed Eyes

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe  (Devereaux & Beth)

"Write a poem using the phrase "the thunder within"

Patience is lessening.
My voice raises, shouts,
even though I know
without a doubt that he
is not the same person.
When the thunder within
threatens to explode,
I turn to my breath,
meditate, closed eyes.

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.
