~I Love~

Hi everyone! I’m so sorry that I haven’t been posting much. I hope you’ve been having a great weekend so far. I’ve decided to do another original poem. This one is called “I Love” and it was written last school year. All that has been changed is my  name.

I Love
By Makayla the Bookworm

I love summertime
The water balloons flying through the air
Flip flops flapping against the ground
Watermelon juice flying through the air
My mom telling us we’re going to the beach
Hooray is all we say
I love the way the waves calm me and I start to slip away
Summer vacation
No more homework
No more drama
Just sun, sand, and family
Fourth of July
Burgers and Hotdogs
Ice cold lemonade
Bees are buzzing
Red, White and Blue flags a waving
Kites are waving in the breeze
Air mattresses floating in the water
One flips over and laughter erupts
Sunglasses can be seen.
Reflecting the sun’s brilliant gleam
Popsicles melting in the warmth
Root Beer floats fizzing happily
Ouch! My skin turns to a stop sign shade
Red hair has its pros and cons
Sunburns are the worst
My skin seems to burn to a crisp
Better apply that sunscreen!
Summertime
So relaxing
I love the way it makes me feel
Free like a bird
Summertime

Let me know what you think and Thanks for reading 🙂

Ode to Fiction

Hi everyone! Today is Tuesday but I will not be doing Top Ten Tuesday’s today. I don’t have nearly enough authors for this week’s particular objective. I will try again next week. This poem I am about to show you is an original. I wrote it and turned it in for a grade at school. All that was changed was my name. Let me know what you think of it in the comments below!

Ode to Fiction
By Makayla the Bookworm
When I read you I disappear
Gone into a different dimension
All around me the whole world changes
Going on a vacation
Never leaving my comfy bed
Forests replace my wooden walls
My bed turns into a canoe
Floating down the river so blue

Pages begin to fly by
New characters appear
And disappear on the fly
Nothing is true
But that’s okay
I need to get away from the stress
Skyscrapers of Homework
Drama galore

You are there for me when I am blue
Even when I’m happy too
My cat protests
But I just smile
The library is filled with you
Hazel Grace walked your pages confidently
Doctor Mackenzie treated animal after animal before your eyes
Your hands held the lives of others

Lives were lost
Characters born
I felt like I was there when Katniss defeated the Capital
The greyhounds race by my bed
Laughter
Tears
My heart explodes with glee
Nonfiction is true
But not as interesting
You were there to witness important events
Like Augustus’s death and Margo`s Disappearance
Many More Mysteries to be found

The chapters start to end
Words turn into brilliant pictures
Action flashes before my eyes
Two more pages
One more
Oh no!
The author acknowledgements appear
My heart skips a beat
A new story is complete
My mind is a cloud
Floating freely
Luckily for me
I will never run out of a passport to another world.

Thanks for reading and let me know what you thought below!

Shel Silverstein is such an amazing writer! Even as a teenager, I still  love his poems. When I saw this quote, it reminded me of both books and life. When books end, I`m normally sad especially if it was a good book. When life ends people are sad and upset. That`s why we need a happy middle and a very happy start 🙂
