Magical Fine Art Portrait Photography by T. J. Drysdale
A tentative step
in indigo waters
rushing backwards  
like a film
of her life.  She
contemplates turning
back into the dark
blue-black ink.
Will it make 
a difference 
which way 
she chooses. 

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.

    That left a shudder. Choices shift perspective, maybe a little light will find her.

    Looking back …. trying to capture the joy, letting go of the agony.

    That question haunts every step forward away from the “dark blue-black ink.” I’m with Shay, it does make a difference.
