Differing Viewpoints

Written for:  Poetic Asides PAD November 2020 Challenge - Day 17

"Today is another two-for-Tuesday prompt day. You can pick one prompt, pick both prompts, or even write one poem that attempts to do them both."
 For today’s prompt:
 Write a nice poem, and/or…
 Write a mean poem.


My favorite thing about you is your smell
in Summer when the days are long.
The love-gift of a fairytale 
beneath such dreamy weather.

You puzzle me a lot.
You don't see the person they are,
you see the person they have
the potential to be.
Sex takes the consent of two.

(This cento was composed from lines of poetry by
  Rupi Kaur, Lewis Carroll, and Ogden Nash)

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.
