White Wishes

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe - Tuesday Writing Prompt
 “waterfall wishes”  (posted by Devereaux and Beth)


Waterfall wishes
cascade in white
tiers, a wedding
cake, a salty tear.
Was that what you 
wished for as 
you stood, eyes shut
tightly.  Is it all
you hoped for in
dark of night?

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.
