Turning Corner

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 #319 - "It's A Launch"

"We’re heading in the right direction starting today. Some will say nothing has changed except the calendar year, but that’s a matter of attitude and perspective. Let’s take a positive step forward and keep pacing toward a great year.
 So, Let’s get ready to launch. We’re blasting off for another great year of poeming here at POETIC BLOOMINGS! Write a LAUNCH poem and set a course for expressiveness!"

A new calendar,
a new year.  It hangs
in the kitchen,
adorned by January's
photo of a baby wolf.

We have turned
that impossible-to-reach
corner.  The pavement
is smoother, a vaccine
exists, and we finally
have a viable president.


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.
