Come Check Out This Sneak Peak, Before Buying My Second Poetry Debut “Scrapbook”!

This February, my second poetry debut “Scrapbook” came to life! It took me 8-10 months to produce this beautiful gem. It was worth the time, stress, effort, weeks, months, days, and hours!

Scrapbook is a collection of poems that talk about some of the happiest memories I’ve made throughout the years. I had the desire to write a poetry book about some of the positive memories I’ve made, because I wanted to tell people that I also have lived and currently live a productive, happy, and positive life, and how it’s not all negative. I also wanted to share my loves with the whole world, because I enjoy talking about myself.

Before you purchase my book, I’m inviting you to read this excerpt from Scrapbook. Hopefully, you adore it enough to want to purchase it, and/or add it to your TBR lists!

1. The Young Craftswoman- haiku

By June Gathercole on Unsplash

Wooden craft needles

balls of multicoloured yarn;

I had busy hands!

2. Cowgirl- cinquain

By Helena Lopes on Unsplash

Young girl

hanging around

unrushed, slowly, at will

a new animal friend to make

a mare.

3. At The Spa- haiku

By Haley Phelps on Unsplash

A hushed indoor spring

took a dip in the H20;

hello contentment!

4. The Birthday Of The Tree- free verse

By Simon Wilkes on Unsplash

Happy birthday tree!

Without you,

we wouldn’t have survived.

You’re the reason

why we’re still alive.

We’re thankful for your presence

and everlasting friendship.

We thank you for giving us

the freedom to enjoy the fruits

you’ve harvested over the years.

5. Welcome To Junior High- free verse

By Jisun Han on Unsplash

My gut

was flooded

with flies, tadpoles, flowers,

and splashes of colour.

I was psyched

to turn this page

of my memoir.

On September 7th, 2010,

I hopped into

the vast, ochre-bricked,

and 1970's resembling building.

I finally turned

the page

of this book,

as quickly as I could.

6. Prom- acrostic

By Alexander Grey on Unsplash

Poised woman clothed in her

Royal garment, stood tall and gorgeous

Open-heartedly entered the dance floor

Moments of pure merriment, cavorting, and chit-chatting mindlessly.

7. Cruising- haiku

By Georgy Trofimov on Unsplash

Floated away

lived on a holiday boat;

had a superb week!

8. Zoopark- cinquain

By Hugo Herrera on Unsplash

Fauna

multiple kinds

furry, prickly, silky

mammals, birds, primates, reptiles, frogs

the zoo.

9. Sushi Rolls- free verse

By Vinicius Benedit on Unsplash

Chopsticks in my blush-coloured hands

ready to courageously scarf down

those salmon and spicy tuna sushi rolls!

Sushi rolls became my new best buddies

that I didn't want to neglect;

my little, chubby, hungry belly kept shouting,

"I NEED MORE SUSHI ROLLS, OR I WON'T MAKE IT!"

10. Chicken Soup- free verse

By sunorwind on Unsplash

A precious bowl of

golden chicken soup broth,

and curly yellow egg noodles

is the traditional Jewish cure

to all physical, mental, and emotional

maladies!
