    I remember May Day when I was six, swaying my hips and performing waves with my hands. Missing two front teeth and feeling totally out of synch with the Hawaiian Hula. I remember Flu Shot day, crying buckets of tears when the nurse stabbed me. To this day, the word “shot” is a painful remin...

    They acquiesced to end their lives, For "what else is love?" A yearning affection, a fatal attraction, An ephemeral escape. Montague and Capulet, sealed in a cage, Trying to break those bars of rage. While diabolic venom spread through the streets, From scorn and spite, rose the b...

    You, Looking through your thick-rimmed glasses, At your crinkled, crooked fingers. Cradling me from birth, As I wailed throughout the night. Cooing, cuddling, burping, belching. You, In your croaky, husky, gruff voice, Reading Clifford the Big Red Dog and The Cat in the Hat over and over a...

    Underneath the Banyan tree, Across the deep blue Hawaiian sea, I'm deserted, desolate, and all alone. Will this island become my home? But the clean crisp sand and cool cerulean sea, And the waves of aloha soon welcome me. The mighty Kilauea accepts me with thunderous roars, As the Wai...

    Just because you don’t see them doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Just because you don’t hear them doesn’t mean they’re not talking. They snigger and gossip like crickets chirping, clattering, chitter-chatter snippy, sassy, and saucy, as they sneer, smirk. Just because they don...

    Staggering out of class, plagued with an overload of homework. My mind is a vagabond, Full of thoughts, like a thousand Indian drums pounding and thumping, I desperately crave solitude. Snuggling in blankets of various hues, on top of a geometry of cushions, Entering a portal of limitless pos...

    From the distant shores of the Far East, The green spiky ball beckons me to return To the village of pungent aroma They say the delectable scent arouses, Inhale, exhale; inhale, exhale. It is a glutted shrine, a golden treasure, a fruit of paradise. The alluring appeal emanates ecst...

    A poem is like a sonata set to words. Transfiguring plain paper into a divine manuscript. The poem evolves, Taking vowels, consonants, Repetition, and alliteration Blending them into an "overflow of feelings" The sonata changes, rearranges Into deeply, dissimilar Dissonance...

    An angel veiled in purity and peace, The whole of Beauty, Charm and Grace, Singled into your perfect face, Swaddled in white ivory lace. As I sit in this wordless broken hearted room, Remembering the haunting history of your father’s tomb, A mirror of chaos; a remorseful soul, May the ear...

    Goggles snapped on, hair shoved in, She’s pristine, crisp, and clean. Legs in unison, both hands clasped, In the chlorine festered pool, she gasped. Pushing off and stretching out, Swimming like a tenacious trout. Kaboom! Splish, splash, splish, splash. In parallel lanes along the margi...

    A blazing inferno roars with flickering eyes of flame, Doused in fuel, unspeakably cruel, Only ashes remain. Yet When I gaze into its vivid amber hues, I am hypnotized by the dazzling sunrise Powered with ambition, aspiration, and anticipation This blanket of orange and red silk Glistens ...
