He stood outside
the door on the platform
of the ancient, rusted
lighthouse, above broken
bricks, and other ravages
of time.  Green glass waves
rose around him like a shawl,
and somehow, he felt
protected.

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 in the process of returning to 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.
