June Bugs- a poem

June bugs

flutter at my window,

their reminder

that the cold

may seize to exist.

 

June bugs,

may I ask

where you go in

the winter?

Do you hide?

I guess the winter’s

wrath may

be too much

to handle

with your

fragile

little

bodies.

 

I sometimes

feel like you,

June bugs.

My dragonflies

can belittle

me too

until my

thoughts

scramble

and my limbs numb.

That must happen

to you too.

 

Thank you,

June Bugs.

I’m not

alone.

Your Average Poem

This is your

everyday ballad

about a girl who

breaks her

own heart

pining for

someone quite

out of her reach,

your average poem

about lies

and deceit

since her life is quite

ordinary

without the thought

of him

or without his touch.

So yeah,

her life is quite

ordinary

no more emotions

no more hopes

and dreams

because her fantasies

tumbled down

one

by

one

by

one.

Just your average

occurrence.

Art in Bloom-a poem

She has

roses in her eyes

and sunflowers

on her thighs.

 

Grass grows

green in her hair

and her smile

crashes into the

ocean waves.

 

She helps sprouts

flourish

with just one

prick of her

finger.

 

She sings with the birds

and at night

paints the stars

in the sky.

 

And when the

sun rises the

next morning,

she does it

all over again.

Loves Me Not, Loves Me by Brittany Julian-Review

Hi, everyone!

Today I have the opportunity to review Loves Me Not, Loves Me by Brittany Julian.

The poetry book is split into two sections: Heartbreak and love-just like the title. Each poem follows the lines of Brittany's love life but easily traces the story of the reader's love life.

The poetry was beautiful and honest. At points, very heartbreaking. All of the emotions just flooded out of the pages. It's truly beautiful.

I think this book can help anyone who's gone through a rough time in any relationship. It gives you a sense of knowing that everyone has experienced some sort of heartbreak.

This book is perfect for the fans of The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace.

Thank you Brittany Julian herself for contacting me about her book. And thank you to everyone for reading.

Love always,

Hannah

Maybe Not a Superhero-a poem

I need not a superhero to save me,

I need you,

To wipe those tears from my eyes

When life becomes

Too much.

 

I need not a superhero

With spider-like

Haste

But just that smile

On your face.

 

You’re my superhero

Yet who I am

To you,

Nothing but

An admirer,

But a friend

If you ever feel like breaking too.

 

You’re loved from all over

Just the same from me,

If not more.

Within the Heart of Silence by James William Peercy and Jacqueline E. Smith-Review

Hi, everyone! Happy Monday!

I teamed up with Booktasters once again to have the chance to review Within the Heart of Silence by James William Peercy and Jacqueline E. Smith.

Within the Heart of Silence is a collection of contemplative poetry and magnificent photographs. A majority of the poems are inspired by nature and finding oneself.

I quite enjoyed this collection. I love how the photos easily fit the poetry. As if the poems were written about the very images themselves. I'm not positive if that was intentional or just coincidental.

The one thing I didn't really enjoy was the author's constant rhythm. Each poem was written in the alternate rhyme scheme. I kind of wished for a little more variety in the rhyme scheme.

I definitely recommend this book to poetry lovers and nature lovers.

This book really leaves you thinking. Each poem inspires you to do a double take.

Thank you for reading everyone! And thank you to Booktasters and James William Peercy for giving me to opportunity to read this collection.

Love always,

Hannah

Dark Road-a poem

She might’ve

strayed from

the path,

a road less

less taken

but for a valid reason.

 

Not in particular,

but she finds

patterns

in each

constellations.

 

Each star

as bright as the

other or

each a little

gentler on the eye.

But whatever constellation

it may be,

she still walks

down the

dark road

without a flashlight.
