Sunrise (Verse)

As someone who is very excited for fall and the continuing wheel of seasons, I thought a good idea would be to have a new series of poems about various times of the day. If I can, the plan is to have a piece on each of the following times: Sunrise (featured here), Morning, Noon,…

I Welcome the Rain (Poetry)

At my house, at least, we've been blessed with a lot of rain lately. Being inside led me to clean my room, which made me find an old poetry notebook ("old" meaning it's from 2016-2017, so practically ancient). Inside were two poems expressing love for rain, so I thought it would be timely to officially…

Firefly Telephone

In an effort to avoid over-explaining myself and essentially ruining this poem, I'll briefly describe its history with two short phrases: staying up late; being interrupted. Enjoy. Faceless voice crawls in my ear And paints familiar pictures. Nausea and waiting keeps me quiet With invisible smiles to speak with. The moon slides by like a…

Steam (Poem)

This was one of those "works in progress" that I decided was never going to progress. I started it while in an airplane, and since I've landed I'm unable to get back the inspiration (is that what this is??) of that moment. Enjoy! The wind is faster every time it passes; It hisses as the…

Poem: You Are Little Lights I Love

"Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun." Ecclesiastes 11:7 This poem is to no one specific, I just liked the idea of comparing my appreciation for lights to a person. Enjoy! You are the city lights when I face the night: Every tiny bulb, little…

Searching for a Miracle

I know it's been a while since I've been posting anything. The holidays have really got me caught up and busy. Right after finals, there were concerts, performances, meetings, travels, and a million other things to do. If it illustrates how busy I've been, I'll say that I haven't even had time to bake. I've been selling…

Autumn Spice Wordlessness (Poem)

Hands down, fall is the BEST season. So, for a while now I've been working myself up to write a poem about it. I have about two dozen of these, but most of them don't do the season justice. Like, not remotely. There I was, scribbling notes, and sitting outside, trying to trap all the…

Princess Lullaby (Poem)

Hi, everyone! This is a little ditty I made up for a gal I was babysitting once, trying to get her to fall asleep. I sang it to her, coming up with rhymes as I went, and she seemed to like it, so I wrote it down and polished it (a LOT!) to make what…
