All your poems have insipered me and made me think about my own ife. Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with others. My favorites are Exhale and A Poem. :)

Because I read your other poems, I figured I'd read these two, and guess what? I loved these too! They're fantastic! My English teacher would love you!

I really like the Inhale-Exhale one. Very beautiful.

And your Haikus are so sophisticated and lovely-- the best I've ever come up with is like "Haikus are easy / but sometimes they don't make sense / refridgerator" lol.
