Favorite Quote:
"Count your age by friends, not years; count your life by smile, not tears."

~John Lennon

The Mojave
A golden sunrise will burn your pure eyes.
Daisies singing with purpose have insects
Beneath their surface. Refreshing prizes
Wait alongside your king’s subdialect.
His sketch artist claims to never collect
A spit of recognition while others
Get Mercy’s light, and he now blubbers.
Why does his superior neglect him?
He throws verbal rocks at mocking covers
To get passion before it got so grim.

The author's comments:

Most of my poetry is written in my creative writing course, or I write it while waiting for classes to change. I am by no means a poet, and I hope some students from my course join, too.

This is a Dizain poem I wrote today, and it replicates how that course makes me feel.
