“the sun sits pretty

Written for:  The Twiglets #246 - "the sun sits pretty"


Red sun sits low.
Pretty soon it will sink
beyond horizon of ocean.


Sun is sitting pretty, 
shining from her throne,
wielding power to turn
the earth into gold.


pretty little girl
dances and draws pictures
beams a ray of sunshine


            There once was a man who proclaimed
         he could bring forth the sun, he explained.
                 Recited a chant,
            sounding more like a rant.
      Sun ducked behind storm clouds of rain.

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.
