dawn snow

Paul Whitener (1911-1959) Snow, 1951, Oil on Canvas

On heels of Autumn’s burnt
umber, and indian red hues,
when houses meld with land
and trees, a pink dawn dips
brush over white canvas.
Town twinkles, illumined
in purity of Winter.


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.
