Unlikely Birth

Written for:  Poets United Midweek Motif~Blooms (noun)

One would never guess a wee white bloom
could produce a long, hot pepper.
Behind the basil, there seemed no room.
One would never guess a wee white bloom
could act as a suitable womb
touched by Summer’s subtle zephyrs.
One would never guess a wee white bloom
could produce a long, hot pepper.

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.

    I love the sense of containment in this poem – as if we enter a world that is womblike and quite amazing..
