Turtle

A hump of slow moving moss,
four tree-bark spades
enfolded in weather-worn wrinkles,
carress the smooth earth.
                   *
One wise blackberry eye
reflects old memories,
while a small pebble nose
takes in the world...

The Truth The Government Is Hiding From


Why are we making such a big candy grab out of the election?
The president's place should represent responsibility and kindness, not a big power struggle.
The election has become overated and twisted by greed.
This is short, but it summarizes the world's state, 
Everyone cares more about being in control than 
Being the helper of our nation.

Puzzles


If our nation was a puzzle,
A giant moving puzzle,
Full of beauty, sorrow, and pain,
The piece with love and unity
Is missing right now,
Dropped by a small child or dog
Onto the floor.

The Effect of Sugar On the Snow Queen

"Winter is here," chilled the Snow Queen from frozen teeth.
"Winter is here," agreed the snowflake, falling from Sky's icy hand. 


I heard this all, hidden behind an ice covered tree. Suddenly, an icecicle cracked beneath my feet.
The Snow Queen whirled around, her eyes blazing. "What mortal DARES to look upon me?" she shrieked.
"You and all your family shall be forever frozen!" She walked closer to freeze me into a block of ice. 
I fumbled, dropping my thermos of hot chocolate onto the snow. The Snow Queen stopped.
"What is that?" she demanded. "Give it to me!" I had an idea. "Okay, I'll give it to you, if you let me go,
and if you don't freeze me and my family." Her eyes narrowed. "Fine." The Snow Queen grabbed the thermos,
opened it and sniffed it. "No doubt, this is a secret potion for everlasting beauty !" she cried.
