Winged Traveler

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #531

Words:  spark, wing, shift, water, gratitude, crystal,
        flutter, stories, haunt, words, staff

Spark me with
a glittering crystal,
and I will show you
fluttering wings
over white-capped
waters, grateful 
geese taking 
their leave.  Oh,
to shape-shift
into a winged
The stories 
I could tell.  
Haunting words
whispered over 
a campfire, glowing,
with a poke of my
crooked, wooden staff.
Sparks fly.   

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.
