"What is it that exhilarates you?
What is it that you chase?"

Awed by waterfalls,
I discovered spectacular
ones while living
in Oregon.  That continual
cascade of water soaking
the rocks below.  Sight, 
and rushing, swooshing 
sounds combine like
a crescendo in music.


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.
