Onomatopoeia

The sounds we make are a delight to the ear
bark,cluck,achoo
the sounds we make never disappear
buzz,eek,ow
a story told only with sound
tweet, splat, eeww
it is not likely to be found 
hiss, bump, clatter
onomatopoeia

Underwater


Underwater I feel like I’m not on earth

It gives you this feeling of water and life

It gives me a second to be away from our loud noisy world

It lets me be in the moment
That feeling that you get nowhere else

Peace and harmony even though you can't hear anything

The water feels safe yet dangerous

It makes me aware and observant
Underwater it's a whole different world

Floating around, in space but on earth

Alone and isolated in a peaceful place

In your own bubble
You can’t talk, hear, smell but you can feel

Feel the water against your skin

See the light moving through the water

Feeling like underwater is where I am meant to be

Dear Former Friend

Dear former friend,

I have been meaning to get in touch. I know that it has been many years and many things have happened. The main reason I am writing to you is to ask you a question. This is a question that I have had since that day at recess. I don’t know if you remember it, but I do. I remember the first time we met in kindergarten, I walked in and sat at a spot at a table. There was a little name card had my name on it and I was staring at it when a small girl sat down in front of me. You introduced yourself and before long we were in deep conversation. That same day at recess we played on the swings, singing songs and telling jokes. During the next couple of days we became good friends. We were interested in the same things and I was happy in your company. I don’t know what tore us apart. It hurt so much the first day. I felt like my heart had broke in two, like I had lost something that I could never get back. I hope you look back on what you have done.

The Forest

The forest, covered in a magical light

Lofty and bright, casting green waves of heat

A safe space, old and full of stories

Closed in but open for miles
Looking up at the tree leaves

Brown bark climbing to the sky

Fluttering green leaves

Filtering the lofty light
Each sound is like a part of the forest

Making it come alive with every critter

All the sounds blend together making a song

Every part of the song means something different
The golden light streaming through the trees

All of the green plants, glows like the color of life

Every way you look at the forest it looks beautiful

Magical as it is, every piece fits the puzzle of the forest
