Winter's Painting: Poetry On The Odyssey

Winter was feeling a little dull without a snowfall and a poem to celebrate it, so here we go!

Winter's Painting: Poetry On The Odyssey
Skylar Blackman

February is almost coming to an end and I've been living through a whole winter season without any snow. I was beginning to wonder if snow would ever show up in my new home and it finally did the other night. It's not much compared to what I'm used to where I used to live but it's still equally as beautiful and never fails to inspire me. I wrote this simple poem to appreciate it and I hope you'll all enjoy it as well and maybe even get out there in the snow before it leaves us again.

Winter's Painting

Look out beyond,

the world glitters with the presence

of snow that spawned

from the unknown to spark the utmost pleasance.

A shiver is breathed all around,

trickling up and down my spine

and the world is empty. No one to be found.

At once I can fly, for the world is now mine.

Slight dustings still come down,

dancing in the street lights,

like a baker adorning a cake with a sugary crown.

May you never turn around, for fear of missing the sweet delights.

It decorates our eyelashes, our hair

as we prance outside as if we were still children

without a care and as if no one was there.

With no effort, we found our haven.

I often wonder why we search so hard for joy

when it's right there in front of our eyes,

waiting for us to realize it's not a ploy,

but rather the sweetest prize.

Open your eyes and take in

every sweet wonder in front of you

with your wildest grin.

Honey, it's long overdue.

What are you waiting for?

The wonderland is waiting

so get out there and explore

what nature's artist has been creating.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
