Stars and Sun

Dear Readers, here is two more poems on
the beauty all around us I do hope you'll enjoy.

The Stars that twinkle like diamonds in the light
Are twinkling there in the middle of  night
Like precious gems they sit and shine
Like the sun they'll never be mine.

They are the candles in the sky
in the daytime they are very shy
but at night they bravely appear
Showing absolutely no fear.

God gave these beauties to us
and thus
we can enjoy them
Thank you God for skies gems.
                                      -Poem Girl

this poem is a free verse it does not rhyme but it still has rhythm

As she sits in the sky
She shines and she'll never die
in the summer she burns
in the winter she fades
but she stays bright all day long
she sleeps at night
but still she creeps back up in the day
She shows Gods glory
who created us and her.

Heavens Garden

Dear Readers, this post will give
you a taste of the beauty of Heaven 
but no one can capture the true beauty.

 Heavens Garden
The Garden with the greenest grass
The loveliest flowers the freshest air
The garden with the posts of brass
The pathway of the richest gold
The grace of God is everywhere
The garden cannot be bought nor sold
This garden of of the fountains fair
This is heavens garden
And someday he'll take you there.

goodbye for now

Drops of Rain

Dear Readers,  This poem shows the glory and splendor of the magnificent gifts God has given us this one in particular is on the topic of rain drops. They inspire me.
Just look all around you and you will see how beautiful God has made everything to shout his name. Enjoy.

Drops of rain 
On  the windowpain
flow down and drip
to the ground
making hardly a sound
Drip drop plip plop
is the song of the rain
rushing down the city drain
they flow with pride and sparkle in the sun
they are the crystals that forever run
they shine the sky in lovely green
they humidify the air and make it clean

Surly God created wonders that fill the air
When he calls them near
He tells us to tell of the wonders that he places there
When he whispers in your ear.

First Sentences

Dear Readers, Today's post is on first sentences
my dad and I recently went to Barnes and Noble
to purchase some books we searched the store for my
favorite topic classics out of these we chose
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn  A Tale of Two Cities
and Pride and Prejudice  while there we got to talking about
first sentences first sentences are usually very good and here
are a few in particular "It is a truth universally acknowledged 
that a single man in possession of a great fortune must be in want
of a wife" that was from Pride and Prejudice "It was the best of times it was the worst of times" that was from A Tale of Two Cities.
We also talked about how we should practice fist Sentences putting them into our own words several times each time do it differently practicing this will help to perfect your penmanship and will help your sentences to be the very best they can be (Example....It is a truth universally acknowledged that a man with very few possessions must be in want of a rich wife..... as you can see it's similar with a slight twist if you read A Tale of Two Cites you will see that Charles Dickens changes his sentence a very many times but he keeps them all in his book that is a very good example of what you should do with a good sentence take a famous sentence and change it put your own words in it so that it sounds familiar yet it's different this will help your writing.
