An October Sun Categories: rispetto, 10th grade, 9th grade, image, imagery, october, Form: Rhyme
November prepares for the raindrops to freeze
but October’s sun shares its chromatic rays.
And upon a canvas of leaves paints the trees
as longer nights encroach upon shorter days.
Nature dips Her brush in an October sun
transforming the landscape before She is done.
In the Backstreets of my Mind Categories: inspiration, life, metaphor, poetry, Form: Rispetto

Chameleon Clouds Categories: 12th grade, beautiful, color, imagery, moon, stars, Form: Rispetto
Chromatic chameleon clouds, change color
while shadows meld with ebony silhouettes.

As ubiquitous sparkling stars pierce the night
moonbeams gild golden waves with metallic light.
And when darkness descends like a...Read More
Cindrella returned Categories: cinderella, moon, Form: Rispetto
Falls in love, silent, soft, lone glimmering moon,
lunatics enamored in her magic spell

pearls in ballerina, radiance excel.
Oh! Resplendent...Read More

A new beginning without a broken heart

Here, alone, beside the sprig of Shimrock Falls
Where memories rise from poetic slumber,

A glossy gown for granite of raw umber.
Let me...Read More
