Trying To Help Myself

Written for:  April 2022 PAD - Day 15

"Write a patience poem."


I meditate for patience
which eludes my persistence.
A deep breath in, slow breath out.
No need to shout; makes no sense.

Calmness and understanding
for disease worsening.
Stress at home in palpable
Each day I grapple, hoping.

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.
