Holding Strong

Written for:  Sunday Muse #154
Unwilling to cede
his Winter throne,
the lion attempts
to stare down
the milk-white
lamb of Spring,
soon to become
next king.  Each
animal reflects 
a season.


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.
