RIP June

One of our guinea pigs died today. Mom and Dad weren't home when we found her, so we kids boxed her up and buried her. It went fairly well, and June was bid goodbye with many tears.

(the little kids knew I was going to take a picture so they arranged the flowers artistically :)

So, there was this contest...

And there was this poem that I had lying around...
So I entered this contest...
Hoping for a small amount of scholarship money...

Well, no money is going to be published in an anthology of poetry by teens titled "Of Faith and Inspiration". Of course I am very excited. I never thought I'd be able to say "Oh yeah, I'm a published poet." It's just one poem in just one book but still....pretty dang awesome! And it'll look nice on a college app.

And here it is!

The Symphony

Sound of a harp
Fairy strings
Hidden elfin choirs sing
Songs unheard by man take wing
Music of a moonlit forest

Song of colors
Drops of rain
All the heavens in a soaring refrain
For which to listen would be in vain
Music of the rainbows

Medley of smiles
Trusting eyes
A guardian angel's lullaby
A sweet little face turned up to the sky
Music of a child's innocence

Symphony of wonder
For all to hear
Song of laughter, song of tears
All creation singing clear
Music of all beauty
