Ok, so this was my first marathon. Exhilarating!! I am exhausted but yet, still full of energy ( I’ve worked back to back overnight shifts since Friday, and am at work as I type). I would love to be able to do the anthology, but my exhaustion got the best of me on the last poem.. 🙁 I wish everybody good vibes and may your inner poet shine even…[Read more]
I am so honored to be on this list! Thank you so much for hosting this and I can’t wait until next year! What a good feeling it is to know that I can follow prompts and still come up with ideas to write. Thank you again!! And thanks to everyone who shared their poems with us – they were fabulous!!
When I was five, I loved to ride my skateboard
when I was six, it was my bike
when I was seven it was roller skates.
I loved to mow yards and make money
My friends and I used to put on plays
My dad would […]
The rain softly fell and soaked into the ground
though there wasn’t much soil to soak.
The trees were so green and full
the grass so lush and green
A Robin Redbreast hopped around and found
breakfast for […]
Her soft red fur shimmers in the sunlight
Her eyes lock into mine to show her trust
She is mine and I am hers
and when we part one day
I will be sad
She’s my dog, my best friend.
The first paragraph comes from T.S. Eliot’s Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Tell human voices wake us, and we […]
I’m not sick
I feel fine
I’m not sad
I’m happy inside
I’m not hated
‘fore i still love most
I’m not lonely
Even though I’m alone.
You think you are still 35
You are not
At least you don’t shop at aeropostale
Or try to sport a belly piercing
Or faddish tattoos
And what’s with the cleavage??
Your body is stretched out
Your face sags, […]
Dent-de-lion or taraxacum
boasts a beautiful yellow flower
but watch it closely and you’ll see
it turns into its power
the yellow “teeth” begin to dry
and then they turn to fluff
a seed that flies with […]
Arrival to a destination unknown,
departure from the familiar comforts of home
we see many unfamiliar aspects
of other people’s lives
yet we tarry onward
to experience new things.
Passage into unfamiliar […]
The darkness came a little at a time
But once the world was destroyed it was void of all light.
Half-dead roamed what used to be the streets. Their vision obscured by once was bright flashes of […]
The world was without form, everything floating around space as we know it now.
No rhyme or reason to this massive blackness, swirls of matter, light years away.
One big black hole, no planets, no sun, […]
We are all from dust and from dust we will return. Therefore the land recognizes us as its children.
We will never be completely lost,
Maybe only briefly misguided by our own accord, only to find our way […]
She never smiles, she never laughs
It’s sad to seriously choose life paths.
A joke was told, her face was bold and never cracked a grin. Your face will crack and break my back if happiness sets in.
Experience southern adventures and fun.
Educational journey? Enduring heritage educates ages.
Kick it up a notch? Famous waves, sandstone perspective, hike trails, go flying through,
And walk on feet.
Dearest 9 year old self,
When you meet your future best friend for the first time
Don’t beat up her brother!
Dear 12 year old self,
Climbing trees is ok, but don’t jump out, crutches are not your […]
It was a stormy, fog-filled night
The sudden hush outside
Gave me a fright.
I grabbed my coffee cup from the shelf
When the wind blew so hard
I peed myself!
The canteen closed early as the fir tree got […]
