Sweetest Life



To Warsaw
Lewisburg
Berlin and back...

Surfacing, I gasp

I have never been known to love like this

I have believed
I have been meticulous
Like these flawless little butterflies

You are the undercarriage
The lighthouse
The patient of the quiet
Everyone's honored back rows

Certainly this will all lead to somewhere

To the uncovering compositions
To the closeness at twilight

Cheryl Newton Claim this poet

I have been seriously writing poetry since I was in my early twenties. I am 38 now. I write in my down time. By day I am a busy oncology nurse. At night I turn into a delicious poetress."Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.” ~AristotleThis is only a very small selection of my poems. I have written over 100 (and counting) Love that there is such a great venue as this for those of us who are so creative. =) POETS ROCK! more…
