The Girl On Fire & The Boy With The Bread
Revolutionaries in the Time of Bread & Circuses

May The Odds Be EVER In Your Favor

For those of you who, like me wear proudly the golden Mockingjay pin, and are therefore a passionate Hunger Games Fan, you know that this craze is taking aim and captivating our nation. The story of The Girl On Fire and The Boy With The Bread is so incredibly written, and once you turn that first page, you shall never stop. Susanne Collins is a master in her craft, a specialist in suspense. Every chapter leaves you hungry for more 😉 I think that, like the story of our dear Harry Potter, this series (3 books in all) will be an instant classic and a story that is told for hundreds of years to come. a legacy of literature, a crossover of artistic integrity and popular culture is coming, and I could not be more thrilled. These are the kind of books that truly leave an impression.

So I present the first, in I’m sure, many poems about the phenomenon to come. Inspired by The Hunger Games, a short piece, “May The Mockingjay Fly Forever, ”

With the shine of golden mockingjay pins, the fight for our freedom, and lives begins.

A Girl On Fire will take aim against a colorful enemy’s cruel ire. With quick precision, we’ll make the decision to fly against our foes, strike hard against our hunger and woes, and we will not surrender to those who wear the rainbow wigs.

The Capitol can fall, but only if we don the emblem and hear the call…. The song of shattered candy hues of glass, echo in our midst, our freedom to live is nigh, sweet taste for which, we could have only wished!

Alongside our Leaders, Spirited Katniss, and Sweet Peeta, we will let our hearts and hungers lead us, and through our passions, they shall free us.

Down with the Capitol, we raise three fingers, to the girl that taught us all,

To fight for our rights, to fight for life, love, and other such worthy endeavors.

We sing a song of battle tonight.

May the Mockingjay Fly Forever.

Beauty That Defies The Cold

A fair tide, and a fine afternoon to you, fellow blog adventurers! ^_^

I’ve been inspired by my English Literature class as of late, learning about the Romantics, their love of nature and their poems personifying the sublime! I wrote this about a week back, as I awoke to find the world sparkling with snow. I felt myself, as I’m sure Wordsworth, and Blake did when greeted with a majestic scene of natural beauty, overwhelmed with emotion. So I would like to present you my first ever poem written in the romantic style, “Mystic Is My World In Snow.” I hope you feel moved, and even inspired to write about your own flourishing natural world, enveloping you in lovliness!

Dress my world in brilliant white
Paint today in snow to wonder and delight
Let sparkling magic fall and adorn my hair
Let its ethereal beauty linger there.

Oh sacred secrets of the sky
I cannot deny your ultimate sublime
You take the everyday, and with your Cloudy Climes
And glowing Snowshine Skies
Create a wintry wonderland before my eyes

Mystic is my world in snow
Warm feelings alight, my heart is aglow
For all is right, and gone is woe
When snowflakes swirl and dance aside my window

Like children we delight in the gorgeous white lovliness
Everything softens, everythings brightens, gone is all ugliness
Love is a snowstorm, wild and wonderfully warm
Lips pressed to lips, snowflakes kiss
Our cheeks so tenderly
What could be amiss

When all is bliss?

Dress my world in brilliant white
Let us live forever in this majestic sight
Sparkling drifts, whispers the words that we only know
When we feel a reaching warmth in falling snow

Beauty that defies the cold.
