Favourite Poem


by Rich Accetta-Evans

“One orange Section
Standing for the whole.

Two of them
their thin wet skins
adhering gently.

A long white string of pulp
from the mouth
of the naked orange.

The translucent orange body
opaque and pointed seeds.

The setting sun
is hotter
And drier than an orange.

The orange peel is gone,
a soft white coat remains.

Orange peel and eggshell
Among the coffe grounds.”

September 14, 1994

I really do like this poem, although I don’t like poetry. The poem shows different ways to look at an orange, but it may make you have different ways to see the world.

Spirit; Stallion of the Cimmarion

Spirit. It was a name of which I was familiar with. A name from my childhood. A horses name to be more precise.

This horse inspired me to have courage, bravery and some people may not know this but- this movie is the reason why I started riding horses. Spirit belong to a herd. And he is the leader, his coat is golden that has a black line going down his spine (see incised in video). One day, he wanders off and gets captured by cowboys. From there on, he is made to go to a ranch and be tamed, branded, but along the way, he meets an Indian who is determined to escape and get Spirits’ trust, which he does when he helps him get out, along with all of the other horses.
Then, he meets Rain and they obviously fall in love, he saves her life and all that stuff. Blah blah blah.

Spirit was definitely my number 1 favorite movie! Still is.

Beyond your imagination,
From a world made of blocks,
With creatures roaming the lands,
Within the Earth, mines appear,
Inside the houses people burn gold,
Below the trees, animals play,
Over the hills, people dig,
From all of these things, you have a world of Minecraft.

My Voice

My voice is the one that is the one that is forgotten.

My voice is the sound fading out of your head.

It is the one people may know once, but never again.

The one you listen to only once.

My voice has been ……
