We saw a bunny drowning in the pool.

Saving it might make me late for school!

We dried her, gave her some food and warm nest,

She slept all day, she needed the rest.

Returning her to the wild would be a hard thing for me to do.

But to make my bunny and her mom happy that would be . . . → Read More: November 2016

When Poetry Alive! came to school,
They had so many great poems,
And they were very cool.
They really were so funny,
Funnier than the rest,
A great show of Poetry Alive!,
It really was the best.
Thank you Poetry Alive!,
You passed the poetry test!

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving what a fun time of year! Full of turkey and stuffing, and buckets of cheer! We sit with our families and gather around, and give thanks for our blessings and spread joy all around.

In The Woods

In the woods my heart does dwell,
Where sun and shadows greet each other,
Where streams and lakes seem to glow,
Doves and bluebirds harmonize,
That is the place I know,
In the woods.

In the woods, the place I call haven
A place where fox and deer run,
The wolves and coyotes roam,
The sun kisses the earth twice a day,
That . . . → Read More: October 2016

Halloween is the time of year
Little monsters everywhere,
Ghost, ghouls, witches too
Trick or treat door to door

End of a road is a wishing well
Throw a coin in
But my coins are Halloween coins
You should think of your wish before I scream at midnight
Run on your little legs
Go to bed so Halloween is done

I close the door so many times
and I can’t help but think as the hour bell chimes
the reason why I lock the door
is it what’s inside the outside or more
people often argue that I close the door to hide
but no one ever comes to so what lurks inside
no one really knows why we close the door
yet . . . → Read More: July 2016

Suffering

Rotting from the inside, I’m sure the stench has got you wondering, “what happened?”
How do you deteriorate undercover?
How do you look fine but feel as if you’re dying?
Well, I’m melting from the core,
I’m certain you can find evidence of suffering, dripping from every corner of the fake smile …

I blame it on the poetry,
I blame it . . . → Read More: June 2015

Change

Change is heavy,
but we lift the
the weights of
change to train,

But no matter
how much we
can lift,

Change will
make you
weak,

There’s no
way to
prepare,

The only
way to prepare
for change,

Is to be
open to
Change.

I Can’t Write a Poem

Forget it!
I don’t have my writing notebook
I don’t now how
I can’t come up with anything
My hand hurts
My dog ate my paper
I don’t know the alphabet
I can’t think of any writing words
My water bottle spilled on my paper
I think poetry is weird
My baby sister tore my paper in half
My doctor says I can’t . . . → Read More: June 2015

Distance

The distance between you and I
can be measured by the lack of conversations we share,
that end on a good note.

Whenever there is an exchange of words,
our voices would start to boom and compete with the sound of thunder.
Causing the ground to shake and tremble beneath our feet.

Our faces would turn bright red and eyebrows tilt.
Our jaws . . . → Read More: May 2015
