Prideful Share


Weeks worth of emotions, thoughts and words are ruminating in my brain, their current consistency too thick to plate (upon the page). With a bit more time to marinatee they will become tender and more favorable a dish to pass.

For the time being, I am sharing a poem written by my eleven year old son. Bloody brilliant if you ask me! This mom is so impressed!


Element Poetry
by Carter Retzlaff

Gold
Shiny, rarity
Melting, freezing, bending
Jewelry, electricity, dentistry, bedrock
Dissolving, reflecting, shaping
Valued, attractive
Au

(I had to ask what "Au" meant. It's the elemental abbreviation for gold on the periodic table. He is already learning chemistry, a subject never presented in my education.)

Seriously, very well done.

Ruminate as long as needed but feel free to purge when you get the urge.
Your son is a much better poet than I. Au, I learned something new today.

Wonderful!

Even though it is all about gold, I love how the words created a diamond shape.
