2: My Home Poem I am from computers, from ipads and flash drives. I am from the cats wondering the quite house (home description... adjective, adjective, sensory detail). I am from the Peach tree, the Thalictrum thalictroides I am from a lack of family traditions and glasses, from Kelly and Brian and Polly. I am from the sleep of my father and the stress of my mother. From the virtue of patience and the value of sleep. I am from the cross. Further description. I'm from Britain. steak and salad. From the Uphill both ways snowing walks of my grandfather, the with the rabid dogs chasing him , and the disbelief in Santa of my mother . I am from pictures on the mantle
3: Place of Quite Poem My mother's kitchen, a place of quiet The oven off, near the counter The fridge quietly humming in the background In near silence my little sister crawls into the kitchen My father follows behind He happily plays with my little sister She giggles in happiness My father pauses momentarily to find a snack He debates about making the steak in the fridge He eventually decides to have a salad He then takes my little sister back to her bedroom My mother’s kitchen, a place of quiet The oven off, near the counter The fridge quietly humming in the background
4: Myself Poem Sometimes I sleep, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I talk, sometimes I won’t. Depend on how I feel, I might even go home. It really just depends on bacon. I’m not (the average) Dresden Files fan. And I ain’t a good poet. But I learned that ain’t ain’t a word Because I am a doctor who fan. I’m not a time lord. My worth is not determined by what television I watch. No matter what I will always have my dreams, I will always be wonderful me.
5: This Class Poem As I sit at my desk I open my language arts book My essay sitting next to me on my desk Reading the ligature piece that I am writing about one last time Making sure I used the correct vocabulary Making sure that I have good Greek roots One last time of checking my GUMS Then my writing assignment lay in front of me Completed
