field, memory, magic

In my memory I slow-stepped
fields, meandered meadows
of magic color, trees of
every height and type–
scents of pine and hickory
surrounded me.  Water flowed
over outsized rocks.  If you
had an entire day, you still
could not experience all
this blissful park has 
to offer.  I want to go back.

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. I like “meandered meadows of magic color,” lovely images here, thanks for the view!


  2. It’s sad that we cannot go back… but maybe our memories deceive us… not everything was all good.

  6. Ingrid says:

    I really enjoyed this walk in the park: I do hope you get to go back there before too long!


  7. A sigh of a poem. I like the way you round it off – starting with memory, ending with that statement “I want to go back”. Yes.
