Down and Dreamy

Written for:  Friday Writings #68 - Light as a Feather

"So today for those who would like to work with a prompt, I’m suggesting “as light as a feather.” What comes to mind when you hear that phrase? Write about or anything else that tickles your fancy and it with us."

Imagine the lightness
of a featherbed–soft
downy ivory, with
feather-stuffed pillows
to recline against.  I
would take my quill pen
and write flights 
of fancy poems that would
look as elegant as my words
would sound.

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.

    Sounds like a dreamy way to write. Perhaps with a pot of coffee or tea at hand too. 🙂

    That sounds like a delightful writing environment. All that’s needed is an electric kettle and tea.
