We Are Six Years Apart

Written for:  April 2022 PAD Challenge - Day 18

"Write a We (   ) poem."

We are six years apart.
Ever closer we draw, with time,
reliving childhood, and each fresh start.
Parents gone, like silenced wind chimes.
Still we laugh.  Dark humor never departs.
Love, compassion, and some Key Lime pie.


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.
