Escaping Horror

Written for:  Sunday Whirl, Wordle #508

Words:  border, finery, surprise, ferocious, child, card,
        form, fine, effervescent, sky, rising, poor

Poor child from across
the border, surprises
everyone in her past
life by rising up
to touch the sky.
A fine, effervescent
form she is, dressed
in her finery, always
remembering to send
letters and holiday
cards to those left
behind in that ferocious
country from which 
she escaped.

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.
