To all shy people

You may be shy
Or nervous
Or think people don't like you
(They do, though)
But that's okay
Shy people are kind
They are super trustworthy
And let you talk since
They know what it's like to be left out
They'll be quiet but amazing and kind and smart
They hear almost everything
Every joke and whisper
But won't go and spread it around
They don't get noticed too much
So they'd be great spies
Lots of people like them
SInce they are not super loud
And instead, will listen to their problems
And give awesome advice
They are a little hard to read
But if you like them, just tell them
And they might surprise you and like you back
They make the best friends ever
And even though they might not have as much as some people
They have strong relationships with their friends 
They don't trust many

The Passageway

The passageway
Leads me forward and backward
Showing me the past present and future
Giving me choices to chose from
And memories to remember
The passageway
Is sometimes dark and narrow
And sometimes wide open and sunny
It lays out the past present and future
For me to pick up and examine
For me to watch and listen
To remember
The passageway 
Leads me forward

poem challenge: First Grade

First day of first grade

The first day of first grade scared me
It wouldn't be as easy as read stories and sleeping
I'd have to do actual work
I got to meet my teacher that morning and she was very nice
My parents knew the teacher and helper already too
I had a lot of fun though
I had lot's of friends 
And our teacher baked us brownies
Almost every Monday if we were good
That was a very fun year
But the next year I moved away
And I don't remember that much from was I was younger
So I'm glad I remember all that

All Alone

I walked across the swaying grass
I sat on the hard pavement
All alone
No one with me
I looked at the groups of friends laughing
People laughing and flirting and smiling
While I sat alone 
I ripped up the grass around me
And threw it into the wind
The wind laughed in my ears as it threw the grass back in my face
I looked again
At the
Groups of friends laughing
People laughing and flirting and smiling
Feeling my eyes well up with uncried tears
All alone

poem challenge: Light


She danced in the dark
The soft moonlight reflecting of the glint in her eyes
She swayed to the beat
Her lips parting as she softly sang along
Her white teeth shone out it the dark
The shadows hid her well
Her black silhouette hidden
He danced with her in the dark
They danced in the dark all night every night
Hidden with no light
They danced together in the dark

poem challenge: Dancer


She loved dancing
She was amazing at it
It was the center of her world
It meant everything to her
But the other dancers got jealous
Because she was the best
She was moved to the back
Told that she was too good 
The others laughed
But she didn't let them stop her
She shined above all
The brightest star in the sky
She loved dancing
It was her life.

I watch the sun set to the west
While the moon rises to the east
The stars start sparkling in the rainbow sky
Over the blue ocean
That reflects the sun and moon
I make wishes on the stars 
As they start getting brighter on the darkening sky
The sun sinks lower behind the trees
While the moon continues to rise higher and higher
The sky turns black
 Illuminating the stars and ocean waves

poem challenge: Goose


I watch the Goose go by
While I pretend I can fly
I cross over the bridge
Whistling back at the birds
I watch the fish jump in and out of the river
Walking through the cucumber garden
With cucumbers waiting to be pickled

poem challenge: Summer


My first time camping
I was very excited
In the car holding my new dog
I was excited that I got to bring her
It was both mine and my dogs first time camping
It took awhile to get there 
But when we did it was amazing
There were tons of people and dogs 
There was hiking trails and an arcade and mini golf
It was the best campground ever
I hope we go back there soon

Next School Year

Next school year will be different, masks will be worn and social distancing will be in place. How do you feel about next year? Are you excited to see friends and teachers? Are you dreading wearing masks all day?
