At Montauk Point

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Poetics:  Poetry of Place and Space
(posted by Ingrid)

"Write the poetry of the places and/or spaces which inspire you the most. It does not have to be natural scenery: choose a cityscape or even a cinema or shopping mall if you prefer. I simply want to know how place and space move you, and which places and spaces mean the most to you."

When on the beach at Montauk Point
troubles slip into the ocean.
Watching waves never disappoints
when on the beach at Montauk Point.
Its beauty remains unspoiled.
Words flow like a magic potion.
When on the beach at Montauk Point
troubles slip into the ocean.

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.
