Nebraska Ode Poem


The beautiful rolling plains 
brisk, sharp, and golden
trees embrace the land
back roads full of gravel eat at your tires
acres put into farming
big country houses
blue sky full of stars
stars overflow the sky
I look for the brightest one
this is my gorgeous state

Persona Poem

Christmas Ornament

I get so tired of hanging all day
I work so hard just to look good
Waiting for christmas to pass by 
The kids pulling on my legs
They are so excited to put me up
I just sit there being still

Found Poem

 Found Poem: Ronald Regan: Speech on the Challenger Disaster

I want to speech truly
of all the people I overcame
and left tragedy behind
I have not forgotten my courage 

5 senses


the cool breeze blowing my hair
the fresh sweet air i breath
colors flashing my eyes
i could almost be blind
birds calm soft chirps in my ears
the taste of flowers finally blooming
