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…

Movie Theater Cookies

I figured another recipe was due, after all those poems. Not that the poems were bad - in fact, I'm rather proud of them, clearly. Nonetheless, in order to keep up the name Poetry and Pastry, I should share a recipe or two. The cookies are called Movie Theaters because they include the two best things at…

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…

Thoughts on Scandalous Ankles

This is something I wrote when I was sixteen. I hope you enjoy. I know I may be presenting an unpopular opinion here, but I'm willing to accept that and whatever flack you give me. Even if you disagree with my premise or principles, please try and understand my underlying point and conclusion. I think…

My Emotion has Finally Found the Words (Poem)

Hey, all. The title is based off a Robert Frost quote, something like "Poetry is when an emotion has found a thought, and a thought has found the words." (Or something like that.) This poem is about me turning emotions into rhymes. Enjoy! Despair makes a poet out of me. Tears rinse out my lyrical…

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…

Rasp/Strawberry Chocolate Coconut Bars

  Hey, guys! Sorry I've been MIA for a while, but I've been procrastinating. (What else is new?) Anyway, I ate this thing almost all by myself. It was an experiment, and a very successful one, if I do say so myself (which I do.) ;D Coconut Ingredients: 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut 1 carton…

Under the Arbor

Hey, all! I wrote this poem while sitting and relaxing under some trees yesterday. All my poems about nature end up focusing on trees and the sky, because those are my favourite things to watch. I love the way the colours play against each other. Anyway, hope you enjoy. If you'd like to read more…

Melancholy Sunset Poem

This is something I wrote when I had a minor-key Franz Schubert waltz stuck in my head, and when I was driving in the country as the sun set. I pretended I was in a music video. Enjoy. Sun shrinks from the sky; Night crowds overhead. Shadows catch the eye; Sunbeams far have fled. Lord,…
