Make Me A Finch

Written for:  Poetics Aside – For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Make (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

How lovely to be a finch of gold
compact for flying, perching on limbs
trilling a song, beautiful and bold.
How lovely to be a finch of gold,
with voice vibrant as a bell’s toll.
I can flutter off on a sudden whim.
How lovely to be a finch of gold
compact for flying, perching on limbs.

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.
