At The Right Moment

Written for:  Sunday Muse #196
Photography by Josephine
I had a cat
looked just like
you, when I was
a child. Now I am
an old man 
with a storehouse 
of magical memories.
If you are looking
for a home with
love, and comfort,
I can provide that,
if you are willing 
to listen to an 
old man's tales. 

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.

    Sara, I think your old man has lots of tales telling of his old memories.
    I have to watch myself; I tell of tales that the family loves to hear because
    they are about things they didn’t know before. Too many becomes obnoxious.
