Lantern Light

Written for:  Sunday Muse #129

I walk by lantern
light, reflecting
the moon
so far
behind me.

I walk by lantern
light in a deserted

I walk by lantern
light.  Where will
it lead me?


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.

    Wonderful Sara. Sometimes a journey without dictated destination, is often enlightening, occasionally thrilling, and always surprising. Loved this… 🙂

    Sometimes, we don’t know where we are headed. Walking in the darkness finding fragments of light along the way.
