About Me and My Poetry

I decided to take up writing poetry about 3 years ago. I used read a lot when I was younger being a shy introvert who was somewhat seen as a misfit. I find it to be very relaxing and therapeutic. My escape from everyday life. I am a fan of haikus, tankas, sonnets, rhyming poetry and stylistic poetry such as E. E. Cummings.

Boiling hot sun beating down
As a solitary droplet splatters on the ground
Clothes soaked with sweat
Day's chores not finished yet
Gardening, time to hoe
Already feed the livestock down below
Chilled water in the creek, a brief reprieve
My overheated body, it does relieve
Just a momentary respite
To soon, will come the night
Grass starting to get tall
Unending cycle until summer becomes fall
Deciding tomorrow I'll mow
As back to work I go
Sun slowly fading away
I squeeze the last minute out of the day
Day finally done
Unfortunately the night has won
Just another summer for me
In these woods, feeling so free

During a sleepless midnight hour
My mind wanders to my beautiful flower
Buried beneath our favorite tree

A pleasing sun ray
My tiredness, it does allay
Nature so kind
I sit and unwind
On my porch I swing
While I listen to the birds sing
Staring up at the sun
My work for the day done
Sweat drenched clothes start to dry
Rapidly the evening passes by
A cool refreshing drink, I sip
From consciousness, I start to slip
My drink falling to the ground below
As off to sleep, I quietly go
