Two-Tone Poem Sunglow Yellow; Navy Blue

I can be Sunglow Yellow, opposite the night, Liberal in the light, Never feeling low, Feeling at home, I am Sunglow Yellow.

I am Navy Blue on a down day, Everything feels gray, Like I’m astray, Drowning in the sea

Cliché Poem Title He’s running on empty, Yet the ground beneath him ‘s a plenty. Some of these things, I just can’t comprehend.

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, they always say Even in a wooden house I wouldn’t throw stones, but hey, Some of these things, I just can’t comprehend.

Persona Poem Jasper – Marmot Basin Earlier morning, Marmot Basin Its citizens active, skiing or hiking Right from the start, you should hasten But the old town can’t keep up with the constant bustling

Never asking to return the favour Jasper, kind at heart The guests always return For a fresh start

Free Verse Poem Over Yonder

Almost like you’re descending to nothing, You begin to ponder, What’s over yonder? That’s when you realize, it’s the mountain that’s bluffing. You’re not really falling, you’re flying, But, how are you flying, If your feet are on the ground? If only the mountain would stop lying. As you begin to think again, the mountain flattens, And you realize you weren’t falling or flying, you were skiing.

Sonnet Snowflakes What is the falling snow really asking? Snow swiftly sliding across the blue sky Such a short life of a snowflake, falling The end of its fall, despair in spring sky

Snowmen built, memorials of past winters Carrot noses reside on the soaked pavement Puddles form pictures, snowmen as printers Spirits of children’s winter friends vacant

Yet, when snow melts, spring dawns, bringing new life The Snowmen’s souls occupy new creatures With spring comes warmth, no more cold and strife On citizen’s lawns, new floral features

Whichever season, not the matter to me I will enjoy any activity

Metaphor Poem Apple Tree The leaves of a tree The rhymes of a poem Flowers blossom Stanzas form Apples grow from buds on branches Poems come together from lone stanzas Once the apples fall from branches of the great apple tree Once the poems find their way from the mind of the Poet And into the hands of the hungry And into the hands of the readers Stomachs filled, Minds Provoked Seeds planted in the ground, Seeds planted in their minds To shape into an apple tree of their own To shape into a poem of their own
