Changing Face

"Write a poem based upon this picture:"

Used to be lit
by lamplight,
now glaring street
lights make it less
homey.  Being built
up, you know.  A
tremendously tall
edifice, secretly
hidden behind canvas
draws speculation
from the elders
of our town.  Too
big.  Can't be anything
we need.  Used to be
lit by lamplight.

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.
