Ode to my Uke This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Tink-plink,
strum-hum,
my fingers
thumb over
subtle strings.
Shy sisters
sing out
lullabies and
slowly coax
each other back
to sleep.
An island’s breeze
leaks wistfully from
its tuning keys. Palm
trees spring from
its waning waist.
My favorite tunes turn lax
and carefree, never-minding
my fine mind unwinding
clearly into a
sea of gold.
