Your Life

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #323
Playing Favorites #6

'“Playing Favorites” is as simple as choosing a favorite poet/poem (world famous or just famous in our own little garden) and picking a line or title of one of their poems and using it as an inspiration for your new piece. Incorporate the line/title into your poem (remembering to credit the source and poet always).'


What do you do
with the light
in your life–
the glimmer or
belief?  Maybe
you not recognize
it.  Are you in self-
imposed darkness?  You
can't beat death, but
you can beat death
in life.

(Taken from Laughing Heart by Charles Bukowski)

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.
