In The Neighborhood

Written for:  Miz Quickly - Days 16 & 17

"Pay attention


Piece of cake.

If you can get out where there are people, listen to them. Make a few notes, and use the experience as the basis of your writing."

Baby smiles, golden
curls like a halo
'round her head.
She waves to all
passersby.  'What
a friendly baby
you have.'

Hurry up, the bus
is coming!
I just want
to get a slice.
I'm getting on
with or without


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.

    I’ve got a few cute babies in our neighborhood…
    But the bus is only good in the city.
    Suburbanites need cars. 🙂
