Untitled-poem written at age 11

Standard

Last night I was reading Pablo Neruda’s translated work “Extravagaria” translated by Alaister Reid (which you should really make a note to buy, if you are at all interested in poetry), and then I suddenly got in the mood to read some of my older, more random poetry. I have spent a good part of the night and early morning sifting through old binders crammed with small poem fragments, half of which really make me realize how far my poetry has come in almost three years! Then I found this one, which is frankly one of my long lost favorites. I never get tired of this poem, and I thought you might enjoy reading it. So without further adue, here is me, writing poetry, age 11.

Untitled

Trees with stemless
leaves
grow in summertime.

finding the rainbows in the sky
the love, the war
and the blood of mankind

I am the orphan
lost in time
taking in the sights

of eternity

A Scene From Texas-poem written at age 12

Standard

This is an older poem that I wrote when I was about 12. Was proud of it then, still proud of it now.

A scene From Texas

The windy tailgate

pulling up slowly towards the

misty sun

 

the pickups attatched to

wooden strings

fingering the landscape

like lost toys.

 

their wheels sidding around

in a circle,

their tracks appearing in a

circle

like my open mouth,

sucking in dust.

 

the orange moon

clouded up from the rain

the pebbles like collected

raindrops on sunnier asphalt.
