New Start

Waiting for a new start
Hoping happiness will be a big part

Sadness I want to overcome
Sorrow that I will not succumb

Day after day wandering where I will stay
Searching for a place to keep the torment away

Night after night fighting the nightmares that bring such a fright
waking up and hoping things will be alright

As the sun is on the rise
It is my emotions I must disguise

Ice cream cone

Sitting here alone
With just an ice cream cone

Sucking at the side
With nothing to hide

A kid at heart
And no impart

No one to adhere
Ice cream from ear to ear

Licking up and down
Without so much as a frown

Like a boy so boisterous
Oh that creamy goodness

Igloo

Snow over a foot deep
Thrown into a big heap

A pile we will make
If not for the kids sake
For an igloo they will undertake

Through the hole I will creep
Not a word I shall peep
Lying here trying to sleep

As I begin to shake
And my back begins to ache
I think it's time for a house break

I'll crawl out like a sheep
And it's off to the house to get some sleep

Chipmunk

My coat streaked in shades of brown
My home borrowed in the ground 

Cheeks full with summers plunder
Winter is coming will there be enough I wonder

Nuts and seed are enough to please 
For these I gather with expertise

Shucking and shelling to reveal my foils
Carefully tucking them away so not a one spoils

They say I'm a mammal small in size
I say please don't chastise

For that little debility
I  make for with speed and agility

For I am Chipmunk
Not some little punk

Heart so divine

There once was a girl with a heart so divine
Whose love I can't help but to enshrine,

  Her eyes so pretty
  It makes me gitty

So without being witty,be my valentine

Poetry

Poetry is pure emotion
It speaks with pure devotion

It tells a story of feeling
one that can be quite revealing

Words that simply come together
Phrases forming without tether

A picture painted from the heart
To have all visualize in part

A depiction of our soul
A poem that makes us whole
