A Ride on the Ferry

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #358

"What can you think of that's free?"

Climb aboard 
Staten Island ferry
for free.  If you time
it right, you can catch
red sundown gleaming
across the water
like liquid fire.  Wave
to Ms. Liberty as you
pass by.  She is burdened,
trying to live up to 
the vision of Emma Lazarus.


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.
