The trail into the land of poetry

I was biking on my mountain bike, passing all the trees,

As the honey bees kept whizzing by and the leaves blossomed green,


I felt a gentle breeze in the air as I rode up the mighty peek,


I felt myself sinking and realized I was in a creek,


I watched the silky water flow so smoothly over the rocks,


I got my bike out of the water and standing there was a fox,

She started to speak to me in a soft and syrupy way,


I was shocked that she could talk and I didn't know what to say,


She told that there was a land where everything was so pretty,


I wanted to go there and so I asked, but all she did was look down and said there is only one way...

Inspiration: I absolutely love limericks (poems and stanzas that rhyme) and I wanted to write my own so I wrote one about poetry!

Summer!

I watch as the wisps of dandelions float into the air like little marshmallows,

I see the honeybees fly into the fragrance of the flowers as they set the sunny fairy-tale and I know a new day is about to begin,

I see the trees dancing to the sunny beat and I know the music of the morning awaits me,

I discover a new world amongst the trees and flowers where everything is blooming with joy and everyday is sunny,

I watch as little children play outside, basking in the sunlight,

I go outside, breathe in the fresh air and I bathe in the silky sunlight and I definitely know that the sun is waiting for me!

Inspiration: I woke up in the morning and I looked outside and I am like, I have to write a poem about this!

Good vs. Evil

Good is the smile on a child's face,
Evil is the frown that taunts you everyday,

Good is the radiant sun, up so high,
Evil is the black moon that nestles below the sky,

Good is a plaque of gold with perfect arrangement,
Evil is a plaque of marble with no achievement, 

Good is the light of a candle,
Evil is the darkness of a scandal,

Good is the color blue of the mighty Pacific ocean,
Evil is the color red of the blood we shed,

Good is the peace we have within us,
Evil is the war intertwined within you that makes such a fuss.

Inspiration: I just woke up with an idea out of this world and knowing me, I had to write it in a poem!!!!

The Ravishing Garden

I walked past the Worry Tree, the home of my sorrows tied with red and orange strings of memories,


I strolled down the ochre path, gleaming in the afternoon sun,


I placed the palm of my hand on the sleek, shimmering black gate,


I arrived at the garden wall, guarding what nestles beyond


I cruised in and came to the The Ravishing Garden, my happy place,


As I entered, the radiant daffodils greeted me with delight and giggles!


The blood-red roses danced around me with passion,


The violets, chrysanthemums and daisies cheered with smiling faces filled with joy,


At that moment, I felt like time itself had frozen, and every little thing was going to be alright,


I felt warm inside because my star had entered me and was filling me with light,


An electric current zapped through my arms and legs and hands and fingers,


From the top of my head, to the tip of my toes


I feel like the sun was laughing inside me and my heart was content!

Inspiration: My inspiration was that I had a class that really opened up my eyes and made me visualize a place that I could go to if I had a bad day at school and so I did visualize it in my head and I wrote a poem about it!
