The Turtle

FREE WRITING

A bright green turtle,
With brown and white checkered across the shell, 
And big eyes that seemed to hold the whole world inside.
When I saw this small stuffed animal,
Waiting patiently for me in the store,
My thoughts drifted
To the newborn baby I’d soon meet,
The one who held all her limbs in the air,
As if they were not held down by gravity,
Like a turtle flipped on its back.

I thought it was the perfect gift ...

I Didn't Take a Picture

FREE WRITING

I didn't take a picture the first time I saw a bald eagle.
It was soaring in the clear blue air,
bathed in the glow of the morning light
as the determined sun rose over the towering trees.

I didn't take a picture when I I glimpsed 
the boisterous sun disappear, 
finally quieted for a moment

I didn't take a picture of the forgotten turtle shell, ...

Climate Change Catastrophe

PROMPT: Earth Day Writing Competition 2019

  I've heard the stories. Rivers withering away to nothing in different lands, polar ice caps melting in the Arctic ocean, the earth as we know it slowly dying under our destructive hand. I've seen the pictures of devastation because of natural disasters that popped up due to our lack of caring, and I've read the news stories over how the ocean life is perishing not only from pollution, but from rising temperatures in the water. Climate change has had such...

Symbolic Footprints
-I want to leave books I've written behind to get the population to do something about the problems in our society. I want to be remembered through my writing, a figure to talk about and celebrate, my memory living on when I am high above the world. Part of that is being one of the only people to publish books the way they should be. I want my books to be on paper...
