Searching for a Miracle

I know it's been a while since I've been posting anything. The holidays have really got me caught up and busy. Right after finals, there were concerts, performances, meetings, travels, and a million other things to do. If it illustrates how busy I've been, I'll say that I haven't even had time to bake. I've been selling…

To the Person (Poem)

You know that feeling when you're hanging out with that one great friend, and you're just awkwardly struck with the idea that you want to be more than friends, but at the same time you know it wouldn't work? Yeah. That's what inspired this work. You might say it's melodramatic or cheesy or overly-girlish... and to you I say…

Autumn Spice Wordlessness (Poem)

So, for a while now I've been working myself up to write a poem about fall. I have about two dozen of these, but most of them don't do the season justice. Like, not at all. There I was, scribbling notes, and sitting outside, trying to trap all the thoughts I had about this season…

Darkness Poem

Hey, all! Quick poem I wrote while slightly depressed with the world. Those moods often end up being my writing moods. Just your friendly neighborhood reminder that life is always hard, but God put a million good things in it to make it easier. 🙂 There is darkness in my world of selfishness and scorn.…

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…
