Mom’s Poetry

Poetry by Mom

This is my collection of poetry that I’ve written.  I’ve always been interested in writing and poetry and at one point, thought I would be I writer when I got older!  To me, poetry such an intense form of expression and a great way to put into words a feeling, a thought, or just an idea.  My favorite poems are those that are raw and emotional, and I typically prefer contemporary poetry.

My favorite poems are: Morning Song by Sylvia Plath, Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost, The Hollow Men by T S Eliot, and The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner by Randall Jarrell.

Hopefully you enjoy my poems and maybe even are inspired to create some of your own poems!

Poetry in Motion Mondays: Not Just For Me

Not Just For Me I’ve felt this coming deep in my bones Like the incessant hum of a cricket’s chirp The buzz I feel, I see, I know It’s been there waiting – poised Ready to spring forth at a moment’s notice I’ve been living a lie and a lie … Read More
