Peace (A Poem by Me)

So, I’m taking an English class to cover one of my last two undergrad classes before I get my AA (so excited to be almost done!), and I had to write a poem tonight for homework. At first I thought it was a stupid exercise, then well, I kind of got into it. I haven’t done a blog in forever, but I wanted to share this. The goal of the assignment was to use an abstract idea, mine was peace, and explain it without using the word. Here is my interpretation of peace.


 Simply sitting


The trees

 Bees buzzing


Sweet nectar

 Dragonflies diving


Across water

 Sun slipping


The hills

 Stars appearing


So faintly

 Crickets chirping


But unseen

 Laying back


Closing softly
