After Ten Years

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #588

Words:  manifestations, moment, wraps, broken, stand, shoulder,
        silence, nearly, powdery, blade, again, shuffle

The statue is broken.  The shoulder
is missing, as if slashed
with a blade.  Powdery substance
lay on the floor.  There is a
moment of silence as they stand
wrapped in evening wear.  Again.
The manifestations have reappeared
after nearly ten years.  They can
hear soft shuffling from upstairs.

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.
