Favorite Quote:
“I almost wish we were butterflies and liv'd but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.”

When my teacher asked me to write about
A sacred place,
I didn’t know

what mine was. I like being in
many places.
Silent places. The car being one.

I like to be alone in the house,
A silent space,
Where I am free to do

whatever I want and I guess that
being alone,
Wherever I am, Is my

sacred place. Within the few hours
I have
afterschool, to recollect myself, I let my mind run

wild. Piano keys scream at the silence,
The oven timer ticks,
And I dance to the beat of my own riff.

This poem is inspired by the "The Sacred" by Stephan Dunn - mine uses the same structure.
