Light Enters Dark

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #303

Words:  water, ripple, shadow, touch within, ignite, walk, pin, trance, miracle, rancid

Your rippling shadow
on water
touched a place
within me-
once rancid, filled
with pin pricks-
and ignited a whisper
of life.
I am entranced
by you,
a walking miracle.


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.
