Invisible No More

my love affair with words

yesterday was perfect

yesterday everything was perfect
everything was so clear
so heartbreakingly beautiful
the fog surrounded it all
it made it perfect
it made me perfect
and i loved it all
i was afraid i was going to die
i thought this must be
what it looks like
just before you die
that perfect fog
it threatened to swallow me
but created such beauty such clarity
maybe it’s the changing seasons
or maybe it’s something else
all i know
is that
yesterday
everything
was perfect
everything
was beautiful
yesterday everything was perfect
yesterday was beauty
perfect and clear
and i don’t
think it will
ever be that way again.

Flowers

Flowers on the floor

Flowers on the wall

Flowers fill my life

But I love them all

 

Flowers up and flowers down

Flowers all around

They’re all so pretty and never dull

Because they’re all beautiful

 

Tulips, daffodils and tiger lilies

I know it sounds silly

But they are all so pretty!

 

Carnations, Roses and Mums

I know it sounds dumb

But flowers are so beautiful

In all their ways

I wrote this poem when i was 10 years old, back when i thought all poems had to rhyme. It’s not my first poem, but it’s one of my firsts.  I remember when i wrote it I was inspired by my wall paper. check out the picture it was very 70s.  The picture was taken before i started writing poetry though.  ( i think that is when i was writing plays for my stuffed animals to perform. I wish i had some of those, but i think they are all lost.)
