“turning page”

Written for:  The Twiglets #284 - turning page

Last page left to turn
saddens me–
end of book

Autumn leaves turning
are the pages of a tree.

child's delight
rapidly turning pages
to her favorite part

             Remember when everyone had pagers,
           then Blackberrys came and upstaged them.
               When cell phones came out
                they had so much clout.
         Now they're stuck to the ears of teenagers.


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.
