Carefree and Cheerful

Orange Poppy flower

Poppy

Draped in crepe

Orange hued petals

Alive with fragility

Wind dances

Evicted from the Garden

Victim of beguilement

Embodiment of all living

Acrostic

And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. Genesis 3:13

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

Genesis 3:20

A Golden Rose

Gold Rose

This little flower wasn’t in the garden of a queen,

Or even in a place where it might be seen,

Yet it was beautifully dressed,

Looking it’s best, as if blessed,

Bringing joy where it dwelt,

Sharing fragrance with any who smelt.

Oh that I, daily might try, to be

An affinity, in similarity.

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.
