Creating poetry anthology
By Faith Jensen
Where I'm from
I am from medicine from business plans and gummy bears.I am from the solid brick house(black dirt, colorful leaves, barking of dogs)
I am from the cherry blossom the roses
I am from sipping hot chocolate by the fire and hot meals from mom, dad, and sister
I am from the yelling to where we can't stand each other
From the Easter bunny knocking at your door and Santa coming down the chimney
I am from a Christian home where GODS name cannot be use in vein
I am from Africa rice and gravy
From the dog my father saved to bring home
The fight my mother got in that changed her life
I am from the photos albums that's show the greatest moments that will
Be shared generation on and never forgotten.
Narrative poem (The mane)
But there's one animal that holds dear to my heart, Jumbo.
His fur is golden as the sun eyes are blue grey stronger than any lion and when he roars you know he is the king of the jungle.
Me and jumbo always have a magnificent time together we will play when the sun is rising to when the sun is setting. We had a bond that couldn't be broken until a hunter decided to take his life away.
But even though he is gone I can still Imagine me and him watching the sun set and the breeze gently blowing through his mane.
Structure poem (happiness from a triangle)
The pizza came out the oven looking like it just got a tan from the sun.
Hot fresh and ready sizzling out the oven with the deliciousness
All in one bit. Tomatoe sauce is red as a lobster, the crust
Golden brown. As it hits your taste buds you feel
the greasy, cheesy, stuffed warmness
confront your heart and you
Just can't believe that
as a triangle
can taste so
Ode to my mother
Ode to my mother a beautiful soul, we gave me life.
Carried me in her womb for 9 months as I kicked
And punch like I was in a boxing match.
How did you feel when you felt my first kick?
You shared and had dreams for me, you
Protected me from a harsh and lonely world.
Taught me right from wrong,
taught me how to be strong and independent.
You borned a bright beautiful baby girl
but a mother bird has to let her babies go.
Mother I owe you the world everyday goes by and I see
that I am becoming more like you.
You are a hard working women
you go to work and come back tried but
still able to stand over the stove and cook for your family.
You are a angel sent from heaven
I wouldn't trade you for any other mother.
You always have my back and you always keep it straight forward.
Through loving, caring, I grew strong
I am proud to be your flesh and blood.
Far and near (sonnet)
We laugh together, we fight together, we cry together
On terrific and horrible days you seem to make me laugh
But as days go on by it gets way better
Because you're my other half
Even from miles away you are still in my heart
We have a bond that's so strong
The distance will never break us apart
Our past is so long
We have memories that will never get lost
You have had my back through it all
In this world that we crossed
You are always there when I call
If you ever shed a tear
A true friend will be near
