Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #311-Fifty Percent

"Write a "half" poem."

Half a cake
is better than whole
when you are on a diet.

What is half
of a semi-colon–
a comma or a period?

In the supermarket
there is a container
of Half and Half
marked "Fat Free".
What is in it?


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.
