    A lazy day slowly drifts by–
    Oh, hello, little butterfly!
    Please, o please tell me where I
    Can touch the starry sky?
    I have searched from dawn to night
    I have wandered near and far
    I have even taken flight
    But never have I touched a star
    So please, o please
    Sweet butterfly
    Show me how
    To touch the sky!

    I’m very behind on my poem-writing, sorry, but I’ve been busy. Now I’m tired. Hopefully I can get back to it soon!

    How could things get any worse? Cessali had been up and down that market street eight times already, and no sign of Collin, even though he'd said traffic was light and he'd be there early. Then the rain had started. THEN she had lost her purse to some bottom-feeder thief. THEN–
    "FRESH FISH," yelled the nearest merchant. Ugh, so annoying. What had she been thinking about? Oh, yes! Then that miserable–
    "Excuse me, miss."
    Cess looked up. Collin, flaunting his debonair smile and an extended umbrella, which he held over her head, stood beside her.
    "Took you long enough," she said with a shiver, grateful for the absence of rain.
    "Had to make a side-stop," he said apologetically, holding up a small bag.
    "My purse!" Cessali exclaimed delightedly, snatching it and rifling through to make sure everything was where it should be. "How did you find it??"
    "FREESSHHH FIIIISSSHHH!"
    "Saw the scoundrel running away with it. All it took was a holler, and he dropped it quick as anything."
    "Thank you SOOOOO much!" she squealed, hugging him, with one arm. "But wait…what's this box here?" She pulled it out of the bag and saw that it was a small jewelry box. But she never carried jewelry.
    She glanced at Collin to find that he was on one knee. Her heart leapt into her throat with joy.
    "I know this isn't the most romantic setting," laughed Collin, "but I simply couldn't wait. I have a question." Rain streamed down his face because he still held the umbrella up for Cess, and the drops now slanted down to splash at his skin, plastering his hair to his scalp. His eyes shone. Cessali realized perhaps for the first time how much she loved him.
    "Collin," she breathed, not even noticing that her smile was so wide her facial muscles trembled with the effort of keeping it there. Her vision blurred with happy tears.
    Collin gazed into her eyes and said, voice choking with hope, "Cessali, my darling, will you marry me?"
    "FRESH FISH, STRAIGHT FROM THE–" The fish merchant's vocal bombardment cut off suddenly as a car drove past, splashed up a puddle, and sprayed him from head to toe, as well as the salmon meat in his hand.
    And that was how they knew that the time was right.

    A double haiku to celebrate my time at camp, and finally coming home:

    I stumble inside
    With a suitcase and a yawn
    To my messy room

    Last week was so fun
    We laughed, played, all day each day
    But nothing beats home

    Instead of a poem, I have a rewrite of Help by The Beatles. This is not my personal sentiment, but I had fun writing it! I didn’t write out the entire song with all its repetitions, just the intro, verses, and chorus once each:

    Kelp! I need some seaweed
    Kelp! Not just any seaweed
    Kelp! You know I need some now
    Kelp!

    When I was younger and much lighter than today
    I never needed to eat any kelp in any way
    But now these days my diet’s been so insecure
    Goodness sakes, I’m overweight, from eating more and more

    Kelp with soybean foods, baked, stewed, and ground
    Low carb meals as long as my tummy is round
    I think I’m about to lick the ground
    Eatin’ kelp, kelp, please help!!

    My eating traits have changed in oh, so many ways
    I’ve said goodbye to potato chip brands like Lays
    To any foods like that I’ve had to close the door
    All this pain, junk food’s bane, has rocked me to the core!

    Today’s poem, inspired by waiting for camp:

    I’m waiting for the moment
    When the adventure begins
    When the first step is taken
    When the journey starts
    When the adrenaline rushes
    When the laughter rings out
    When the friendships are built
    When the joy is let wild
    When I’m no longer waiting
    When I am inside the moment

    Today’s poem:

    Peaceful quiet resounds in the air
    A gentle sweetness without a care
    A sense of resolve, a breath of wind
    And promise stirs within

    The peace has settled
    Come, let us drink of it
    Let us rest in the quiet
    And do what is fit

    For the party is over
    The silence has come
    And with it the promise
    Of safety. We’re home.

    Yesterday\’s poem:

    Light and fire
    Come alive
    They dance and spin
    And wildly dive,

    In a dance so joyous
    So happy and free
    To mark when brave men
    Freed you and me

    This is Myerjemn. Myerjemn was originally good, but greed and bloodlust sank into her heart and she allowed it to corrupt her. She can shapeshift into any type of dragon. She takes delight in killing, and loves to tear her victims apart with her claws. Above all, she hates light, and dwells in a dark kingdom destroyed long ago, where no light can reach. There she keeps her treasure…and the remains of her foes.

    I'd like to see more movies like Hidden Figures: black women who DIDN'T go around beating people up because of judgement, but who stayed strong in their own ways and helped forward the nation. And there were white men who were good people too. We must never forget that people of all nationalities CAN IN FACT BE EVIL, and people of all nationalities CAN ALSO BE GOOD.

    Villains I've loved have had a few things in common: they all had a passion, they all had a friend, and they all had been bullied in one way or another. They need a "tragic backstory" I guess XD

    Zippy: a fabric pattern that's too cluttered and random.

    I liked "make nice," (I always have liked that phrase) "top cat in town," and "keep your noes hidden," but I have no idea why on the last one XD
