A MMR Selection: High School Winner of the Junior Writing Contest - 2014

100 billion years ago Ms. Johnson took her first breath of air
When earth was still a child of time and space
She was conceived in an open volcano to a cockroach and a pterodactyl
She had her father's resilience, and her mother’s soothing voice

So here’s to the poets
Those who harvest creativity
Plant the seeds, water, and grow it

Like a rose
Each petal a different color
Like rainbow imagery
Imagined by pot of gold searching

A MMR Selection for Best of Cowley's Writer's Corner: Fall 2014

I realized I was a girl
When I walked into a game stop
Men behind the desk would gawk

(Ed. Note: This Poem is an MMR Selection for Best of Cowley's Writer's Corner: Fall 2014)

Welcome to college.
I hope all of you had a good summer.
The only thing on the agenda is to review the rules because even though you’re adults now, we need to tell you what to do because you’re not mature enough to know.

Wish me not to leave tonight

But in the morning when the sun is bright
I’ll hold your hand then walk away
& cheek your kiss with fade not stay
