Broken Beauty

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #562

Words:  immersed, ghost, drama, line, radiant, reflective,
        stone, idol, taste, meander, bundle, flickering

Pale, flickering sunlight
reflected on the stone,
once idolized as a dramatic
piece of art, now a broken
ghost of itself.  Bundled
in ragged winter jackets,
vandals did not find 
the stone to their taste.
They broke a radiant
line that meandered
through the center.  
Immersed in their hatred
of beauty, they destroyed it. 

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.
