If a particle of your observations tug at you a certain way, don't forget to write it down.
I am a fifteen year old flute and writing enthusiast who spends a lot of time reading Mary Oliver and Emily Dickinson, not to mention suffering through high register exercises on my flute (only when no one else is home!). I try to read a lot of good journalism, which proves often difficult to find, so I can form unbiased opinions of the world. Poetry is how I then apply these opinions to my own life and reflect on them.

The dog said, "you shall make a vow,
that when excited, you will not say 'wow.'
when you get a tail,
you shall wag without fail,
so you better start growing one now!"
The dog came inside soaking wet,
I went over to give him a pet.
Then he gave a big shake,
how much more can I take?
but I know it's no use to fret.
