Stopping to Think

Written for:  Poetic Asides #640
"Write a pursuit poem."


It is always out
of reach.  Thinking
things through 
before acting
impulsively.  
You would think,
after so many
disastrous decisions,
I would learn.  Burn
your bridges, and keep
looking for the next
change, chance of a
different life–that's me,
at seventy-three.

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.
