An owl silently

looking out upon the world

wise beyond its years

wonderful coffee

created in perfection

sleepy lips imbibe

A deep kiss in the twilight

beckons me inside

A stormy evening Poem

A Stormy Evening 

by Casandra Klund

The pitter-patter of raindrops

Upon my window’s glass

creates a hypnotic melody

As time continues to pass.

the thunder crackled lightly

at different intervals

The ticking of my clock chimes in

and the children’s quiet snores

 

A wet summers night

Drifts peacefully to its conclusion

With the musical prelude

I close my eyes

and drift into sleep’s delusions.

 

*I wrote this poem in response to the current Manic Monday Challenge by Laura M. Bailey. The picture above was provided by the challenge.

This ground feels hot under my feet

IMG_0329

This is a part of a poem I wrote during a dark part of my life right before I switched paths when I was 19 years old. I wrote this right after I found out I was pregnant with my first son. I made some big decisions and things changed dramatically after this point. It was sort of like the end of an era of extreme darkness in my life. The paper copy of this poem has been lost for a long time now and unfortunately, I can’t remember all of the poem by heart since it was from 16 years ago so there are at least 4 bars that are completely lost maybe more and some of the words are probably a bit different because I’m was trying to write it by memory. Even so, you can get the jist of how dark my world was at that time… Anyways, here it is:

Exceptional Creations & Creators – #1

the swing

Exceptional Creations #1

  1. The Swing – Nursery Rhyme poem – by Robert Louis Stevenson – A children’s garden of verses (one of the little golden books)

The Swing is a short beautiful nursery rhyme. One that you shouldn’t pass up on if you have kids. It’s a quick read and the poem does an exceptional job both in it’s chosen words and it’s rhymes to paint the perfect mental picture of a child swinging. Everything contributes to the feeling that is being conveyed. If you read it to a child, and their eyes are closed, it’s likely that they can actually visualize themselves swinging based on the rhythm of the words.

Quick note:

If you have young children, and you would like them to appreciate poetry and stories of all kinds, then Nursery Rhymes are a great place to start. They are short enough most of the time for even the most distracted child to listen to and fall in love with. They are also short enough for the most tired parent to read or recite a couple before bed. So they are perfect in that way.

Do you have a nursery rhyme favorite to share? one you created? Leave a comment I’d love to hear from you.
