Don’t you hear that?
The whisper of the leaves and the hush among the trees?
Near silence: but you hear the heartbeat.
And can’t you feel
That your bones are made of ivy?
Don’t you know?
That you’re rooted to this place in an ancient kind of way?
You know you breathe with the cedar trees
In perfect synchronicity.
You know you feel the presence of the pines,
The web of the forest’s mind,
The silver threads of the slowed-down time.
Because you know you’re made of sunlight.
Here you’re lost and found and there is no hollow sound.
You learned the language they speak here,
Through pure intuition.
The evergreens are not just a home:
You know that this is where you’re from.
You know that this is where it’s quiet.

I know it has been about two years since I posted anything(crazy, I know!) but I wrote this poem in English class and am quite proud of it, so I decided I might as well share it! I know I've been away for a long time, but it isn't because I stopped writing. In fact, I just got accepted to a writing program and will be studying writing at university in the fall! I've had a pretty strong focus on novels in the past few years and haven't written any poetry or short stories. I've definitely matured a lot as a person and as a writer since I last wrote a poem, and I think it really shows in this work compared to my older poems. I could never stop writing, I've just been really focused on novels and have completed four of them to date. Sorry for the long update! Enjoy!

And yes, I did borrow some lines from some of my older poems. It had been so long since I'd written poetry that when I was assigned to write a poem in class I read some of my old work to get inspired and remember how I used to write poetry. Some of the lines really stuck as I was sifting through my old work, so changed them a bit to fit this new poem.

Just uploaded a poem after a nearly two year deviantart(and poetry writing) hiatus!

I'm a reader. I'm a writer. I'm a nerd.
Nerdy Stuff I love:
-Doctor Who
-Star Trek
-Harry Potter
-Nerfighteria
-Books. Just books in general.
-Also, writing. I'm currently editing my third novel.
-Archery, my sport of choice and the nerdiest sports could ever get.

I know that I have been very inactive on DeviantArt in the past two years. I used to share all my writing here, and even some photography. However, as I have grown up I have stopped writing poems and short stories and now write novels instead. Writing is my passion and always will be, being a writer is my dream. However, the kind of writing I do now is not the kind I want to share on DeviantArt. I'm sorry for abandoning this site, I simply left the genres of poetry and short stories behind and have now started putting all my time into novels. Maybe some day I will make a reappearance here, but for now I'm trying to become the best novelist I can possibly be with the hope of someday being published. Thanks for everyone who ever said a kind word about my work here on this site, you are the people who encouraged me to become the writer I am today.
