Time

In distance is time, In time is pleasure, in waiting and thinking we find a great treasure. Patience is found in time, time is found in life, so we have to find our silly little reasons why. Why we keep trying, keep waiting, keep going. Why we always have hope of a future, never knowing

Haiku

I`d be the first to admit that I`m scared of haikus. I used to be quite proud of my ability to use the short and strict form to make something beautiful, but then I was told by my Japanese teacher that mine was the worst in the class. (She actually said a lot of nice

So, the story so far: Day 1 we decided that there might could possibly be some poems out there that don`t suck, and that it might be a worthy goal to make a poem of your own. Day 2 we faced our fears and wrote the first sentence in a poem. Day 3 we ignored

Poetry Challenge Week: Day 3

I know, you still aren`t sold on this whole poetry making thing. Yes, you may have found a poem you liked, you may have even bravely made a whole line, but you are not going to be able to expand that line into a whole new poem. It just isn`t going to happen. Sure, I

Poetry Challenge Week: Day 1

It`s a new month, and it calls for action. Oppurtunity has come to you, in the form of a virtual competition. A slam down, mono a mono, a fight to the death. What is so hard core, so terrifying, so jaw dropping that it casts fear into the hearts of many mere mortals? The most

The Grove on The Coast

                          The sheening white leaves now they suddenly leave as the flowers have faded away. The shining new leaves decked out in fresh green in the wind they softly sway. Here we see those trees decked in their season`s majesty and they keep my doldrums away. Still they stand there though ill tide land there

Sweet Dreams

In the silence of the trees, there a voice speaks to me. “Child, child, why do you weep? Where could your parents be?” Though she looked, she could not see, and so she said what the problem had to be. “My parents may no longer hold me, for they are dead, and now I must

At The Helm

A story has two ends. It all depends on where you start, and where you want to go. It has bumps and ridges, and its highs and lows. It`s a mystery to find your way, with a path that changes as you grow. But you are standing at the helm, so only you will ever

Death of A Tree

The Death of a tree is a terrible thing. For all that shade will no longer be. No happy Summer picnics, no more tree climbs. No resting spot for glorious wind chimes. The birds will move on, the squirrels will leave. The little bunny rabbits will leave your yard be. The foxes will be hungry
