Where I Am Poem

I did it.

This is the final poem!

I have worked pretty hard on these, and I really hope you enjoy the last one. Happy reading!

I am in the milky way galaxy.

One of billions in the cosmos.

I am on the green planet full of life

that we all take for granted.

Where your skin color and gender

shape your life.

Where I Am From Poem

Poem #2.

Goodbye, for now!


So a couple days ago, I told you guys about a poem that we read in class. At the end of the post, I said that I had written my own weather poem that I will share. Here is the poem I wrote about a tornado:


The dark wizard of the sky,

Part 2 Of Child Frightened By A Thunderstorm


Today we read the above poem in class, and I decided I wanted to write a poem like the one on the left. I also wanted to get your opinion on the poem.

What struck me was the personification made it sound like a crow, or maybe a raven. To me, envisioning a thunderstorm as a bird of prey, with big velvety wings that-to a young child-could potentially crush an entire garden. Maybe just the way crows and ravens are portrayed in movies and books made m think this, but I like the poem a lot.
