Forest Fever (Poem)

Sorry I've been MIA for a while, but I just got back from an 11-day camping trip, and although I thought I'd be able to post something during that time, plans didn't work out. (Spotty Internet and getting distracted with the forest) Anyway, here's a poem I wrote that was inspired by John Masefield's poem Sea-Fever. I…

Peacock Feather (Poem)

Hello, all! Hope you've made it through the week all right. I wrote this poem when I was watching my cat play with a peacock feather (Cats really love those things). The beauty of the feather, the idiomatic vanity of the peacock, and the strange femininity the feather carried suggested this poem to me. Something…

A Poem to a Foreigner

So, I wrote this poem after I met an exchange student from Europe. He had a great grip on American culture, and English, and all that, but he was eighteen, on a different continent. All my feminine, motherly instincts made me want to tuck him up and comfort him and give him chocolate, and let…

Princess Lullaby (Poem)

Hi, everyone! This is a little ditty I made up for a gal I was babysitting once, trying to get her to fall asleep. I sang it to her, coming up with rhymes as I went, and she seemed to like it, so I wrote it down and polished it to make what we have…

Mountaintop Experience (Poem)

This is a short little poem I wrote when I was in the mountains. I had expected the trip to be a spiritually refreshing time, when I could pray, read, and write poetry; but I was frustrated that all the mundane things of the world had followed me, and I couldn't escape them unless I…

Dragon Demons (Poem)

This is a poem I wrote about how evil often disguises itself as something cool, beautiful, or even friendly, but it just spews lies. For the record, I really like dragons, but I do see them as a symbol of evil in nearly every culture. I think they represent insidious wickedness very well, since they're…

Mankind’s Story

Here's yet another poem about darkness/evil/hate/etc. I promise I'm actually I very cheerful and bright person, and not a borderline depressed girl. It's just that when I think about darkness, I get moody; when I get moody, I write poems. And when I write poems, I share them with y'all! 😀 But in reality, although I think…

Sometimes (A Freeverse Poem)

Hey, all! This is a poem I wrote when I really wanted to be able to put my thoughts and feelings into a visual form, but I was greatly hindered by my artistic ineptitude. Put simply, I was sad (about something, I don't remember what now), I wanted to get the emotions out in a…

Saturday Ponderings (Poem)

Ah, sabbaths! My favourite part of the week. Resting, thinking, eating, enjoying all my blessings... My cat is named Suki, but she has a million nicknames. Sukkah (pronounced SOO-kah), dahblaise (a corrupted form of "darling"), lefty, Captain Muscles, Duchess, Goof.... the list goes on. She's a real sweetie. Even though we disagree on some things…

Dystopic Poetic

So, I'm kind of obsessed with dystopian novels. I think they're just about the coolest concept ever, and super fun to read. Also, I just learned that the film Ready Player One is coming out, and I thought this would be an appropriate time to share this poem (although I haven't read much of Ready Player One, and I…
