I Am A Plant  (poem that I’ve been told is “relaxing”-no I’m not related to Robert Plant)

I am a plant

Long thirsting for sunlight and soil that’s firm

But I am never at times, always searching, never finding

Directions to where I need to be

So I ask only fortune tellers

Who turn and sneer and take the gold coins I collect

Underneath my pillow

Which has no trace of me

And my name is not Heather

No, my real name is not even capitalized

Because I’ve never tried to live the American dream

Hollowed in my mansion

Where I grew up

Like Rodney Dangerfield in that one movie

I am a man

A tall, limber, lumberjack of a man

And I like to eat from the scrapyard of your soul

And I’ve never been in love

And I don’t like to stand up for myself

Nor others because I think it’s a waste of time

I’d rather be making money

Than write a poem or

Growing like a tree like I do

Taking in those GMO’s so my nuts get big

I think I may get cut down

At the roots

Oh wait

I have none

“Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin

I love to write, cook, and take photos. As an INFP personality type, I truly care about others and my values. I'm a fraternal twin, have two older brothers, and I served in AmeriCorps. I love my family and my boyfriend. They rock! For years, I collaborated online with Stuart Armitage (UK). Our band, The Lyre Effect, released several albums, though we never met in person. Additionally, I've written a novel, novella, poetry book, and children's book series. Being into the visual arts from a young age, I've had my artwork featured in several gallery exhibits, enjoyed providing assistance on music video sets, as well as acted in and co-directed a few short films. Playing piano and singing are also passions of mine (wrote my first song and poem when I was 9 years old). Currently, I'm part of the writing group, Lead Us Ink, and published my first poetry book in 2015. In this technological age, I think it's important to share the written word, something that will always be sacred and personal. I hope this blog will help me to connect more with others, and I look forward to networking with readers like you. I want to find out about new music, interesting articles, and artwork. So, please, reach out to me. I might even have some good suggestions for you. Take care, and happy reading!
