Breathing the Sun

Written for:  Sunday Muse #169
Let that hot desert sun
paint my face. Want to forget
the Winter, the City, 
that chill that sets in
your bones, so that you
never feel warm.  

Car rides along, strong
breezes blow through
my hair.  No cares, 
for I am a merely 
a passenger without 
at least for a while. 

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.

    Car rides are a great way to just let everything go. This is a perfect vacation in a poem–the sense of home spooling out behind one and the illusion of infinity ahead.
