Savoring ice cream, and popsicles, and other yummy cold foods!
Unbelievable times with friends and cousins at pools and the beach!
Many games of tag, capture the flag, hide and seek, and most of all...water gun fights!
Maybe reading or writing...but only if I feel like it!
Entering the pool with a rather large splash!
Remembering the past school year, and looking forward to the one to come!

Campfire at Woodland Altars

Sparks fly up and into the air.
Mr. Gerken says he has no more knuckle hair.
We laugh at this statement and watch the teachers make s'mores,
Enjoying our time in the great outdoors.

I look up and into the sky.
I see all the stars and let out a contented sigh.
There are so many of them--too many to count.
I am having tons of fun, without a doubt.

My voice sings up and into the air.
Here I can quietly sing, and no one will care.
I love to sing in the campfire's light.
It makes the light seem a little more bright.

The peaceful feeling soars up and into the sky,
Even as the fire begins to die.
The teachers and students try to take in the sight,
Before everything fades into deep night.

The Storm

Stuck at home because of the storm.
Trust me though, this isn't the norm.
I personally thought it'd be fun at school.
Stuck inside, going crazy would be cool.
The sirens went off when I was at the bus stop.
I was so excited, I thought I would pop!
Later today, when I'm back with my class,
There might be more storms that start to pass.
I can't wait because as you may know...
I'm a weather freak, yes it is so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I JUST HEARD THUNDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poetry Marathon Day 4: April Fools Day!

April Fools Day

I woke up this morning at 10 AM,

Or so I thought...it's what my clock said.

Then I heard my sister laughing out loud.

April Fools Day joke, without a doubt.

I opened the box of Mini Wheats,

But they turned out to be Marshmellow Treats.

Then I heard my sister snorting really loud.

Aprils Fools Day joke, without a doubt.

I turned on the TV,

But nothing could I see.

My sister plugged it in, and it got really loud.

April Fools Day joke, without a doubt.

Last night, my sister went to bed,

Me, being the smart one, put a spider on her head.

This morning I laughed really, really loud.

Then she told me, "I'll get you back. There's not a doubt."

Just so you know...this is NOT a true story:D No April Fools...I promise!

Poetry Marathon Day 2: State Champs 4x400

State Champs 4x400

She runs down the track,

Never glancing back.

My cousin

She flies like a bird,

Beating the rest of the herd.

My cousin

The track urges her on.

All else is gone.

My cousin

Suddenly a gasp arises from the crowd.

A girl appears. A neck to neck race is found.

My cousin

She runs on the inside,

But the other girl doesn’t fall behind.

My cousin

The finish line is growing near.

The race is so close. We all have fear.

My cousin

She thrusts her front out,

But we are still in doubt.

My cousin

She passes the line.

Who was behind?

My cousin?

It’s too close to call.

Time seems to crawl.

My cousin?

We don’t want the worst,

But did her feet pass first?

My cousin?

Cheers for her start to rise,

For there are no lies.

Her speed was the best.

She had helped her relay team beat the rest.

My cousin

Poetry Marathon Day 1: Puppet Master

Puppet Master

I am walking alone

By myself

With no one else

But myself

A great darkness comes around me

Covering me

Surrounding me

Flowing over me

The darkness pulls me

Yanks me

Grabs my power

Takes my power

Then the darkness pulls me



Yet more smoothly

I find strength in me

From deep inside

Down in me

In my heart

I start to turn

The darkness

It moves too

With me

I gather up all of my strength

Rein in the darkness

Knock it to the ground

Win the battle

The darkness tries to get back up

But I jump

And land

The darkness falls

I stand alone

But realize

Something new

Something amazing

The darkness is

My puppet

My control

My problems

But I am

In control

In charge

The puppet master
