Gun and cash –

Sixteen and alone –

Sara Jane

Rispoli

Needs to find her parents and

Fight for her own life.

Poetry Month – Day 16

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (Acrostic)

Wallowing in the pain of

Awkward adolescence,

Learning to

Love others and to become

Free enough to

Love yourself,

Outcast, and casting out the

Wailing of an

Earlier you –

Redeemable with truth.

Poetry Month – Day 13

For this new trilogy, I have written a Triolet…

 

Genius appliances and friends,

Treasures found in Tesla’s Attic,

Are they magic or mathematic?

Genius appliances, and friends,

Are drawn to the new kid Nick.

One who might know how it ends-

Genius appliances and friends-

Treasures found in Tesla’s attic.

Poetry Month – Day 8

This is a Kyrielle poem in response to Sharon Draper’s most recent book Panic (which I began and completed today).

 

DIAMOND

Though people tell of the danger,

Say “Never talk to a stranger”,

It was in public – light of day,

So She went with him anyway.

 

He was professionally dressed,

His intentions kept full at bay,

He portrayed a family-man (blessed)

So She went with him anyway.

 

She didn’t have nary a clue

Of the nasty things he would do,

Or the way the acts he’d display,

So She went with him anyway.

 

He claimed a daughter and a wife,

His evil plan not on display.

She wasn’t concerned for her life,

So She went with him anyway.

Poetry Month – Day 6

This is a “Found Poem” which is like a word-collage.  I pulled some words and phrases from pages 98-100 of

The Smart Aleck’s Guide to American History, and arranged them into this:

 

Whig on a penny

Depression

Grew up to be

on the  five-dollar bill.

Hated by some

Abraham Lincoln

Crippling anxiety

“Good Guys” and “Bad Guys” on both sides

States’ rights

Not all Southerners favored

Articles of Secession

Tariff disputes

Stovepipe Hat

End slavery
