Metaphor Poem The book Is a beautiful dictionary Putting unknown words into stories, Making us wonder A quiet yet so imaginative book, Saying tongues of a dictionary Until the dictionary translates these words, Are heads do not wonder ever again.
Self- Portrait My eyes are as dark as night, My hair flows like the wind in the air, My smile is like the “ Man on the moon smiling upon us” My soul is a calm ocean meditating over the river My heart, Ying and Yang for all eternity My hand is cold like death, in the sorrowful ages of time, My legs are strong, to run through time like a machine, My teeth are as vivid as the glistening soft snow in winter, I live in a meadow of darkness and light, And eat the slaves of my dreams till the night that I die.
Haiku A bright night It glides through the moon lit sky, A butterfly glows. A fuzz in white A white fuzz in dawn Gleams through the eyes of a whale, Arctic fox feast here. Something huge and brown It moans through the night And gazes at the aurora, Musk ox be so free.
Florida Surf Surf time Ocean oh yeah Something hits me right now People smell the scene of the watch Surfs Up. Picture taken from: Dogpile.com
Limerick There once was a dog from Rome All the while she hoped for a home So she got a toy And saw a tall boy That tall boy was a friend for Prome Picture taken from:Dogpile.com
Past In Egypt Many years ago As man increased and so did woman Queens and kings began to live in temple walls of bright gold In color itself As they themselves queens and pharos worshiped gods As like Hourus, Osiris, Anubus, and Nut And many more gods of learning. When they die, People will give the incenses of food with festival music. As they get wrapped in the white cloth, And buried in golden coffins, When people have wrapped them in rough fabric And put their internal organs also wrapped up. People would give them food and perfume of smell of the heavens, For where they will go, But if not , they shall be devoured by the devour god. And that shall be the end of all.
Sun Follows(Personification Poetry) Dawn arrives at night, When soon a kite is up right, For then again my heart rings, Finally the burst of the sun sings. Picture taken from:http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=pictures+of+the+sunset&fr=yfp-t-501&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8
Color Poem Colors Of The World And Things Dogs are brown, black, and blue Chocolate black is the taste of milk Green smells like cream and conditioner Pink makes me fell happy Sea Aqua is the sound of waves and calmness Love is baby blue, red, and white Black is horror White is care Softness hides in death.

Alliteration Volcano It’s a deadly tidily for death almost like meth, It brings flames of light for it is not warmth People will freeze into statues Making it a deadly breeze, Blazing red will it be For those who froze is dead Picture taken from: http://www.allposters.com/gallery.asp?aid=1578067449&c=&search=A+rainbow&GCID=s15100x003&KEYWORD=A+rainbow+art
If I were in charge of the World If I were in charge of the world, Id cancel evil, worry ness, and also sickness If I were in charge of the world If I were in charge of the world, there’d be peace, goodness, and sinless people If I were in charge of the world, you wouldn't have homeless, killing animals for no reason, wasting food, or drugs and you certainly wouldn’t have abuse. If I were in charge of the world, tigers would be considered pets, and a person who sometimes forgets to sleep, and not make a peep, Would still be in charge of the world.
