Love Blind in Dance

Written for:  Poets and Storytellers United
Weekly Scribblings #57:  Let Us Write (together)
(posted by Magaly)

"For today’s prompt, I’m sharing three of my blackout poems and inviting you to write new prose or poetry which uses one (or all 3) of the poems as inspiration. You may choose to use the exact words, or not."

burst into constellations of dance

love can be a monster, or not

She wanted to dance
zig-zag patterns
of the constellations.
Longed to spread
her wings like petals
of peonies opening
in a sunburst.
So in love, she failed
to recognize 
the lurking monster 
behind her.

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.

  1. Ooh, a sudden ominous twist after all that joyousness. Nicely done.


  2. Scary… One should never get too involved to see what’s there.
