Glow Stick!

Crack! My life has begun.

My light spills into the summer night

as I wait for someone to twist me into something

more special than I already am.

Our time together on Earth is short,

so I make the best of it sparkling through

the clear,

clean,

darkness.

I create my own happiness dancing with color.

But my life is quickly over, and in what seems to be a

snap

of a finger,

the night is dark, drab, and dirty.

I doze into an endless slumber.


Hamster/Gerbil

A two voice poem

By John H and Bear B

 

John

I am a

Hamster

I like to
Play

Sleep

EAT

Sleeping through the day

I like my alone time

I explore

The house

In a ball

DIFFERENT BUT IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD

We are

Enjoying

TOGETHER

Bear

I am a

Gerbil

I like to

Run

Relax

EAT

Awake through the night

I am surrounded by my family

I explore

The yard

On my own

DIFFERENT BUT IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD

Friends

Our lives

TOGETHER


The Color of Play

 

The color of play

like the morning dew.

The color of nature.

Order a small, it comes in soft stripes,

order a big, that is too much for you.

Sadly, the color is becoming less.

Sometimes it can be a bit jealous

because blue, his dear friend, is the best.

It is the jewel on the knight’s shining armor,

it represents animals, Spring, and just true joy.

Green is his name,

the color of play.
