I'm taking a Poetry class this semester, so I have put up some of my poems below. Keep in mind that I am a neophite at this. I hope you enjoy them. I know
that I have surprisingly enjoyed writing them.
This poem was written from a news article I read about suicide bombers who had killed 17 people in Baghdad in one week. It struck me odd that reading about people blowing up cars as innocent people walked by didn't upset me more. The article made me realize how desensitized I have become to all the gore that is in the news today.
This poem is about the Calusa Indians who were driven out of southern Florida 6,000 years ago by immigrants. The tribe was considered an expert in fishing, and also helped to make Florida what it is today through their skills.
Where the sands join the cooling crests,
I know that the last two poems have seemed depressing, but this one is more light-hearted. Our last assignment was to write a poem about a loved one who we have lost. I have never really had someone close to me die, knock on wood, so I wrote about my cousin who I lost touch with when I was 10. Keep in mind that all of these poems have had an assigned domain. Hopefully we will get to more freelance assignments at the end of the semester. Anyways, enjoy!
I changed my dress for you
