Lillian’s Triple Poems

Hey, everyone! I’ve decided to put together 3 poems for you to read. I got inspired by Leap Into Poetry by Avis Harley. I hope you enjoy!

Alliteration:

Moons meet mountains.

Simile:

The sun rises like a bright flashlight. The moon rises like a beaming light. The sun sets as a wink in the sky. The moon sets as a vanilla cookie in the awakening sky.

Riddle:

I’m awake in the nighttime. I sleep during the daytime light. I watch the sunset and the sunrise every day and night. Can you guess who I am?

Yes-No Poem (Just answer yes or no to the questions):

Are sunsets colorful? Are sunrises beautiful? Are sunsets breathtaking? Are sunrises full of color? Do sunsets and sunrises rise and set at the same time?

Life (A Poem from Mother Teresa).

Enchanted Egyptian Beauty

Hey there, everyone! Remember all the years in the past,  when I decided to sell copies of the Egyptian Eye? I decided to sell the copies of my Egyptian Eye again this year. Here is a poem about it.

Triangular prisms sprout rainbows
From the tip of a triangle, triangles peak everywhere
Amazing colorful teeth pointing toward a catchy circle
It is an Egyptian Beauty!

I hope you enjoyed my poem!


About the Egyptian Eye:

I made this Egyptian Eye masterpiece when I was young. (I can’t remember what date I finished it and started it). Camilla mentioned that it looked like an Egyptian Eye. So the name became Egyptian Eye. I used the Egyptian Eye drawing in 2010 for raising money for getting to the conference in San Antonio, TX. I decided that it went so well that I did it for the conference last year in Salt Lake City, UT. It was a great success last year and I wanted to do that idea again this year for San Antonio. Find out more at http://lilliandarnell.com/lillians-art/ for the pricing. Thanks to all of you got a copy of the Egyptian Eye.


 

About Me:

I am the artist of the Egyptian Eye. I am a soon to be abstract artist of abstract rocks, paintings, and drawings. Find out more about about me in my About Lillian page. Thank you!

Shadows Are Always There

Hi there, everyone! This free verse poem is about shadows. Hope you enjoy!

Shadows

Shadows are the darkness of day.
Shadows are the eclipses of the day.
Shadows are almost always there.

Shadows are fast as a cheetah.
Shadows are entertaining like a prism.
Shadows are bright like a rainbow.

Shadows are from the sun.
Shadows are from the super moon.
Shadows are from the bright stars.

Shadows are awesome.
Shadows are funny.
Shadows appear everywhere at one point.
