Take it on the Wing

Written for dVerse Poets Pub - Quadrille #164:  Winging It
(posted by whimsygizmo)

"It’s Quadrille Monday here at dVerse, that fun day when we cling to our keys and bring poems of just 44 words into the writing ring. As with all Quadrilles, we ask you to include one word we provide. So today, the wing’s the thing."

If I had wings,
I’d sing,
have a fling,
build me a nest
for when I need a rest,
flap my feathers
regardless of weather,
Eat some seed,
smoke some weed,
fly so high, and swift–
get my drift?
Oh, if I had wings!


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.

    It could easily be an adult night time picture book. I can picture it all, just as you’ve said. Cheers.
