Thanks | Short Poem

Hot showers and candles used purely for the scent

Beds raised from the ground that don’t smell like cigarettes

Dish washers oh how beautiful it is

To hide your mess especially those dishes!

Traffic lights and construction zones

Things you might hate unless you’ve lived without

I forget to be thankful each and every day

But sometimes when I’m alone I scream and say

THANK YOU

Before I complain

That my WiFi connection has gone insane

Fly- silly poem

She wanted to fly

But the atmospheric pressure was too high

She wrapped herself in helium balloons

But the gas escaped them too soon

She wanted to fly

But her dreams were crushed by some physics guy

And her biology failed her every time she tried

She decided to transform

A bird in the sky, free to roam

So the next time you see a bird fly

It might just be her mocking that physics guy

Modern Problems

There sits a child talking to a tree

About the long day and how things turned out to be

…And as I talked to her-the tree

She humbly smiled and replied to me:

-“This green was of concrete, paved so harshly to stop my growth.

 Little I was, hungry for the sun at birth.”

She leaned down as she whispered to me.

Then I thought about my broken nail, my missing shoe, the lost signal, the text I couldn’t send you

Things that ruined my day

They were not concrete in my way!

So I dust off my skirt, with one shoe on

I go back inside my comfortable home

Thankful for how things turned out to be

See sometimes when you’re upset, all you need is a talking tree!
