A Novice

Standard

slow deciding
moving ahead
taking skills
further than imagined
developing them
little by little
until ready
actual material
created from thoughts
continuously turning
into words,
sentences, stanzas,
paragraphs, stories
and more, a lot more
with each phoneme
appreciation mentioned
exponentially from
a novice to a writer

-Jennie Nawrocki

Words

Standard

words mixed and mashed
for what counted long ago
makes no sense today
ever changing scenarios
morph pictures unreadable
though the people remain
speaking in conversations
relating events of the day
mixing and mashing words
until something is understood

-Jennie Nawrocki

can……..only

Standard

can a rose by any other name smell as sweet
     only if it is a different flower
can the universe have aliens
     only if you believe
can a writer be impersonal in their writing
     only through creativity
can simple objects become sexual
     only when the right words are used
can impossible occur
     only in miracles
can people go crazy looking for something
     only if they are chasing rabbit trails
can the world stop spinning
     only in dreams

-Jennie Nawrocki

Pizza

Standard

given in
sumptuous the taste
enlivening sensory
beads of the tongue
one bite
was all I needed
of this triangular
masterpiece swarming
with cheese, tomato sauce
on top of succulent dough
satisfying every wish made
hunger provides
within that single slice
of hot pizza

-Jennie Nawrocki

Daisies

Standard

a rose so delicate
fragile are its petals
guarded with daggers
adding protection
to quickly wilting blooms
from outside elements
specific to weather
conditions their growth
attracting aphids
and lady bugs of all sorts
extremely precious
their care and maintenance
discard with pleasure
another flower
of distinction replaces
a roses beauty

daisies

common maybe to most
though exceptionally handsome
they grow with ease
amongst woods and prairies
no thorns to hurt
or dying in certain climates
versatile towards everyone
welcoming with its
simplicity abounds
toning the mood
complimenting many
in any arrangement
its open bloom
brings wonders
tantalizing others
teaming for more daisies
