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.

Love, to me so unkind
For so long, my heart it's pined
With you, I've longed to be
Inside, your apathy torturing me
Dreaming of our embrace
As a distant look overtakes your face
Everyday we meet
My heart fluttering as we greet

Seeds of disdain, they're sown
Always together, yet alone
Unnoticed, I've always been
My patience wearing so thin
Your presence, soon to erase
As I disappear from this lonely place
This evening, our final depart
Elsewhere, I'll make a new start
As we say our daily goodbyes
Nothing, no feeling in her eyes
Never will she know
The one who loved her so
Of my intentions, totally unaware
For her, no longer will I despair
In her presence, no longer to be
From this prison, I'm finally free

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

My mind wanders to my beautiful flower
