Gardening

I’ve been sitting on this poem for a while, not entirely sure what to do with it. I loved how it came out, but I kept feeling like there was something wrong. I think I finally got it to where I want it, so I’ll let you all be the judge. Gardening In the light,…

Clouds

I wrote this poem at work, either on my break or during a slow point in the day in between articles. I have a nice big window next to my desk, but unfortunately I can’t see anything except the sky. It’s better than no light at all, so I can’t complain. Clouds I see nothing…
