Forgotten Words

Written for: Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #419 - New

"For this week’s prompt, let’s simply explore the word “new.” Some thoughts: a new year’s resolution, a different poetry form to try out, a new baby in the family, a change in career, or even news that has captured your attention."

Kindness and compassion
are not new words
just forgotten ones.
Their meanings are
straight forward,
simple to comprehend.
In this new year, 
wouldn't it be grand
to seek out 
those old words, 
and practice them.

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.
