My family is a freshly baked Sicilian lasagna. 

My family is a freshly baked Sicilian lasagna,
Together, with our unique characteristics, we create a bond to remind people of home and unity,

Ode to the element who shelters millions of creatures

Ode to the element who shelters millions of creatures
Ode to the lapping waves mother to creatures of the unknown
Ode to the water guided by a celestial being

It would be War and Peace;
Yellowing edges, but new in sparking thought,
It seems old, but is really new...

Love is respect, not violence.

6 years of age,
Youth spritely cleansing me,
A love for the clarity of life,

Run

A poem from the perspective of a child refugee.

Tears cascade down my face as I watch in horror
the end,
A slender,
white object slices headfirst into our dirt road,
My eyes widen

Thank you for solitude:
the early-morning prayer of the countryside.

Thank you for patience:
understanding that imperfection takes time.

Thank you for stillness:

We have been bred in a nation of sorry’s.

What are you sorry for?

The person you are?
The person you are becoming?

Don’t be sorry
you are not at fault

My eyes scan the rows of meat in the store,
Neon price stickers flash prices,
These stickers don’t show the animals’ war.

Beauty standards are overrated,

I open up a magazine girls thin and lean,

Models with pale skin and no flaws.

As youth, we would suckle sweet nectar from the tree of life,
Fearless youth with relentless energy and powerful radiance, free of strife,
Free minds scribbling stories of far off places with mythical wildlife.

Fearless youth with relentless energy and powerful radiance, free of strife,

The eruption of Mt. St. Helens.

On the 18th of May, Mt. St. Helens's tears lit up in an explosive cry;
Billowing smoke clouds saddened the sky;

Summer burning bright...

Summer burning bright,
Undaunted by the night.
Shining in the fields of wheat,
Palpable in the warming heat.
 
A golden globe hung in the sky,

Think medieval!

Significant King and Queen live in the
Ornamented castle
Venturing along in the forest of
Everlasting trees
Reading peacefully in silk beds

An acrostic poem about Rainbow Rocks in China

Racing rivers come from little streams
A desert in Western China holds these wonders
Iron streaks the rock along with other colors
Nothing to compare with

An acrostic poem
 
 

Getting up on a crispy morning,
Eating scrumptious foods,
Noticing the rays of light through the window screen,
Enjoying going to outstanding school,

Her hair drifts through the wind…

Her hair was sunshine,
her dress the sea
Her eyes were emerald gemstones,
and her shoes were pearls

Think of white. What do you see?

When I think of white
I see mist in the quiet air,
Round snowflakes falling silently
And waves crashing against the rocks.
I feel calm and relaxed

A very scary poem! Beware!!!

Down in the silent night,
When there is no light,
There was a little sound
Of round paws walking around.
 
The soft paws of a cat,

Just fun, short poems about nature.

Daffodils, daffodils
Smell so sweet,
Down in my garden,
 Down by my feet.

Look up,
Look down,
Look all around ,

Seal Journey
 
Richard and Jonah went through the snow,
In the valley bellow, the seals will go.

My little annoying brother and sister
Are driving me INSANE
Yet don't care if I collapse
Because of their CRAZINESS
They just keep on going
