Recently I have been really interested in poetry. I wrote a few in the last couple weeks and I am eager to share them with you guys.

My Hero

To see him you may not know
That inside he is filled with grief
His bravery is below
The heartache that is shown so brief

Having him close by
Makes fear depart with ease
On him I can rely
More than the endless seas

Hidden beneath his grey hair
Is sorrow of a noble man
Who sits in his dusty chair
Thinking of how it began

Christmas Time

It's Christmas time
Come one, come all
The church bells chime
Hear theit call

A white blanket covers
The autum leaves that drop
An icy chill discovers
A glistening treetop

Too soon Christmas passes by
The streets are busy no more
Our sorrow is hard to deny,
But our gifts are hard to ignore

My Mom

The swish of her black house shoes
And her house with splendid views

Sitting at her laptop typing away
Practically every day

Wiping down the smooth granite counter tops
And scrupping the floors with drenched mops

Writing Progress

Recently we have had a tutor come to our home to teach us for three hours. From 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. we are being taught reading, math, vocabulary, and writing. Compared to the writing piece I did this summer about Mimi I can see definite progress through this one.

Based off of the writing piece I did this summer I wrote this piece shortly after we had the tutor come to our home. The prompt was to write a memory and grab the readers attention. So I did the best I could. To read my old piece see my October 5th entry.

As my grandmother walked along the beach beside me we watched the waves crash reaching our feet. We dug our toes into the sand as we sat down watching the waves of the ocean. Her short, silver hair blew in the wind as she gazed out over the sea.

"Mimi, you coming?" I said sticking my feet into the ocean.

"I will be there in a second." she said.

As I floated along the surface of the ocean I felt the waves grow bigger underneath me. They thrusted me forward until I reached the shallow end. I fell down feeling the sand and the sea shells at my feet. The salt water filled up in my nostrils while I got pulled under. Mimi walked over to me stepping into the ocean as she chuckled. We both laughed happily until our cheeks were sore. As we looked out further than anybody can see we saw figures swimming among the surface of the sea.

"Dolphins!" I yelled in excitement.

"Wow! They are so pretty." Mimi said looking at me.

Staying at the beach, my family enjoyed the day as it flew by. We watched the sun sink creating beautiful colors in the sky. We ate our dinner laughing, smiling, and talking. Sometimes when I think back to this memory I can see Mimi smiling from up above.

I will always remember Mimi. I always have and I always will.
