Tuesday Writing Prompt  (posted by Devereaux and Beth)

Use the phrase "a midnight sigh"


With Cinderella's shoe
missing, she is compelled
to leave it, and climb into
the carriage that will carry
her home.  It would not do
to be late.  Fate would be
her coach turning into
a pumpkin–difficult ride.
As she breathlessly sits
down, a bell rings out
the hour.  She breathes
a midnight sigh.

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.
