Steadfast

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #567

Words:  night, growl, mountains, erase, until, firm,
        challenged, build, try, breathes, skin, regrets


At night you can hear
the mountains breathing,
erasing all other
sounds, until a growl
builds.  The lion tries
to challenge, its firm
skin stretched tight
from corners of
his mouth. To his
regret, the mountain
remains standing.

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.
