Music to my ears, so mellifluous
is the nightingale's song, ambiguous,
Give ear to her notes, they float on the breeze,
swirling through the air, they're tuned to appease;
I dance to her song, so mellifluous,
She's sitting somewhere, inconspicuous,
Sonnet 105, Feathers on the Water
11th grade, bird, flying,
Dear shorebirds, my quills inspiration.
I love the way you're chased by the ripples

Dreams of the coast; I smile just a little.
Let me watch you as you bob and wiggle
You're much...Read More
Bliss vivified is-ness
As we be breathed, by grace divine sublime

And bewilderment extinguishes sight
The depth of confusion similarly numbs
Worlds spin slowly when everything is night
Tomorrow seems distant, the day stretches out
Yesterdays close, time forever has cost
Silence is broken from...Read More
I am, though I didn't ask to be,
A woman, a daughter, a sister, a mother.
Born into these roles, and know no other;
Even my name was given to me.
We are, though we didn't ask to be,

Le vaisseau d'or
Ce fut un grand Vaisseau taillé dans l'or massif:
Ses mâts touchaient l'azur, sur des mers inconnues;
La Cyprine d'amour, cheveux épars, chairs nues
S'étalait à sa proue, au soleil excessif.
Mais il vint une nuit frapper...Read More
To read old poems now scattered debris
Drifting through time on its slow-turning wheel
Written secrets emblaze spokes that turn free
To leave deeper tracks the mind can't conceal
The road is traveled with its selfish means
The journey is...Read More
forgiveness, god, judgement, religious,
Forgive me oh my God for I have sinned
And only I know how I have and why
So many feathers blowing in the wind
And whirling round an unforgiving sky
They call it Lashon Hara, though I'm not
The Italian Petrarchan Sonnet
Her charm is the purest gem ornament
The most valued flower in my meadow
whose fragrance blankets me, days in a row
with a somewhat soft satiny raiment
Her love enthralls my heart beyond measures
with savor far above that...Read More

Why shouldn't each color have its own existence?
Why should the moon shrink holler for seasons smaller?
Why must Bluebells turn white on someone's insistence?

Stand Up To Stutter
appreciation, community, humanity, philosophy,
We have chosen a leader who stutters
Too many only saw his speaking flaw
Stumbling over stiff words as he utters
Blurring his momentous messages of awe
Accepting duty makes us who we are
So speak out only for what...Read More
Stage of groans
Nobody here delivered to be deaf
And introvert of his stools
Life is the bunch of roses
Fruitful to smells and holds for precious
Letting any motion mining marigolds
Of their flowers fairy blossoms
Blooming to stage of groans
To be very...Read More
