After writing about the importance of poetry last week, I decided to create a few of my own. Though all my poems are originals, I did have some inspiration.
The Golf Tee was inspired by William Carlos Williams’s The Red Wheelbarrow.
The format for Siblings was taken from the book Joyful Noise by Paul Fleischman.
Golf Ball was inspired by S.C. Rigg’s The Apple.
Technology is Found poetry inspired by several articles about technology

I hope you enjoy reading my poems as much as I enjoyed creating them!

Family (Cinquain)
important delightful
loving laughing caring
family equals my world

Children (Haiku)
Benjamin and Emma
and soon Cameron makes three
keeps parents busy!

Siblings (Poem for Two Voices)

Golf Ball (Concrete)
Inspired by S.C. Rigg

The Golf Tee
Inspired by William Carlos Williams

so much depends
the little wooden
topped with a golf
ready to go tee to

Technologies bang the market.
What can we get from the latest technology?
Will the newest iPhone, Android, or iPad make me breakfast?
Different shapes, colors and designs.
Aids users in performing tasks.
Helps showcase our personality.
Many more will storm us.
Trendy digital gadgets!

    Your poem “siblings” was so funny to me because I am the baby of my family, so it reminded me of myself when I was younger. I actually used to sing the song “I’m the baby” from the show Dinosaurs when I was a little girl.

    If you don’t remember the show Dinosaurs, here is a clip maybe it can spark your memory:

      Loved this Rachel! Thank you. I am still young enough to have watched and enjoyed the show Dinosaurs 🙂
