Written for:  Friday Writings #62:  Pivot

"For this week’s optional prompt, the word is “pivot”. You can use that word (or a variation of it) in your poetry or prose pieces."

Two meet
talk is sweet
romance ripens, hearts beat
they dance lightly on their feet
blush paints both their cheeks
soon they feel they've reached a peak
what would make their lives complete?
wedding vow, bridal suite
pivotal moment when she speaks,
I am pregnant, we'll be 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.

    Surprise, surprise!! This is not an uncommon happening. And often times the reply is not the one expected. I think you told it well, we will remember this one for a while.
