Narcissus

Narcissus Flowers

Sakes! Can’t you see

Its always all about me!

Narcissus blooms first!

Lady Spring aptly chose me,

Her number one bud to be.

Different Perspectives

Strawberries

1. My Point of View:

“Childhood memories

Of my grandpa’s garden patch

Full of strawberries

And the giant apple tree

That hid me as I ate them.”


2. My Sensible Sister’s Point of View:

“You should’ve asked Gramps

Before your hands reached for

His prize berries

Your temptation caused you

To eat and run to that tree.”


3. My Mom’s Point of View:

“Eating strawberries

From her grandpa’s garden patch

Childhood thief flees to

Apple Tree Sanctuary

Her secret place to hide”

NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 2 Challenge:

to write a poem that plays with voice. For example, you might try writing a stanza that recounts something in the first-person, followed by a stanza recounting the same incident in the second-person, followed by a stanza that treats the incident from a third-person point of view.

Adversary Aggression

Lion in sunset

He attacks with vengence!

What is it the enemy fears?

Observe his means.

What is the main strategy

That he uses to frighten you?

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you. —Eric Hoffer
