See that large balloon?
It is the last moon
of time.
Hear that mournful tune?
Lonely cry of loon,
a sign
for a sky of gloom
where stars will commune
sans shine

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.
