My Triumph& Contrast

(Seeing something I learned about and studied in school in its full structure was amazing. It inspired this poem.)

Being able to see you in your full beauty

was breath taking.

The waterfall that you were built on memorizing

I will never forget the amount of joy you brought me

that day a memory I will always remember.

The Edges & Alignment of life.

So many edges in life

Sometimes there just apart of your favorite memorial structures

Or an edge of a big humpback whale tail.

Or just maybe the edges are different and apart of sample tiles or a hallway that seems to go on and on forever.

How does one handle the many edges in life

does one simply just photograph them and tuck them away for another day.

Oh does one admire them everywhere they go and try not to take them for granted.

Seeing Double!

Seeing double dalmations
seeing double while taing a picture
seeing double gray cars!

Seeing double wherever I go like I can’t seem to get away

from the two’s.

You can see two of me if I had a twin

but I am not so two of me is not out there

walking around, joking around.

There is just one of me but if there were two of me

how could the world handle that.

Two voices that would be powerful, stubborn and full of life.

But for now only one voice will have to do, but I do enjoy seeing double

every now and then.

Views through Glass!

a little bit of rain on the window
too much rain on the window
reflection of my camera, while taking a picture of the tree’s.
screen in window while taking a picture of my backyard trees.



sunset through the trees.










I see you through the walls you put up to keep them out.

I want you to know that no matter how many walls you

put up I will break them all down.

I know you seem to think being on your own will always be your way

to live without feeling disappointed but I know the truth.

You will smile again, and you will bring down all those walls.

Because living behind the glass is nice sometimes but there is so

much more outside those windows you avoid.

My Treasures!

My treasures are small

Old and a gift.

They are there to remind me

I was once a child.

A teenage who was shy and

Was afraid to use my voice, to share my work.

But because of my treasures I have found my voice and I’m not afraid to share my words.

The view of Architecture

A church in Washington D.C.

I look at you and I can see the history and time you went through.

You stand strong and hope someone will walk through your doors.

But they all walk by or drive by not thinking twice about you.

Your just another building to them and what is the point in looking at everything you pass by.

It will take up too much time and well they got places to go and people to see.

Your beauty and history and knowledge of things that have happened are not

their concerns.
