I have been writing in verse since the fourth grade when we began our poetry unit. My first published poem was entitled “Flowers”:
I planted a flower in the rich, solid dirt
And some of it fell on my plain, white shirt.
As I watch the wind make the flower dance,
I smell a breeze of a beautiful fragrance.
I am pleased to say that my writing has improved since I was nine years old. This blog gives me the platform to observe how my writing develops over time. I hope you will join me as I find my voice as an author and poet.
I am currently a student at Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School. After high school, I aim to pursue a career in journalism. For now, my days are filled with dance, photography, music, fluffy animals, and (of course) writing.
