Can you visualize the falling snow?
(TOOLS: map, ode, metaphor)
Ode to Recovery
A long, foggy, winding path
Littered with reptilian fears and chaotic isolation
To serene belonging
As debris is cleared and fog burns away
A clear, broad and sunny horizon!
(Tools: Haiku & Alliteration)
Always in action
Inhaling Ammonia air
As I arch and ache
Why aren’t they
smooth, shiny and bright
The texture so
coarse and so tight
As I tie back my
I lie down in bed
I thank God for
This smooth brown texture, soft to the touch,
This deep defiant hue, hated so,
This darkness so questioned, so often feared,
This beauty, my dear, is my skin.

Dare I venture past this door?
Eaves above me beckoning more.
New relationship like an unwrapped gift,
Expectations fears galore.
X plus Y, he and I, dancing clumsily… together.
Screen so blue so white
Grant me inspiration now
Or I may perish
