The Dive

Poem By Trenton Anderson

Deep breathing.
Psyching up.
First jump of the year.
Will you take it?
Closing eyes,
Deep breathing.
Backing up.
Deep breathing.
Dash down the board!
Not backing down,
Jump! !
Sailing through the air
Breaking the surface,
Cold water
All around.
Swim up!
Deep breath.
You did it! !

Golden Leaves

Sailing through the wind
Golden leaves caress the air
Gliding gently down

Outside Calls

The leaves call out to me.
The rocks sing my name.
The birds gossip about everything I do.
The branches groan with a wanting for me.

A Ballad Of Overcoming The Death Of Someone You Love

The woman he cherished no longer felt pain.
He came to the their dwelling, but she wasn’t inside.
She lay outside, in a patch of soil, soaked through with rain.
“Why have you left me? ” he wailed as if she had lied,


There once was a woman named Bella,
was ditzy but had a great fella.
His first name was Tom.
She bought him a bomb.

Sounds Of Nature

Drip drop
Flitter flutter flap
Crackle cruckle snap
Nibble nibble munch
