Nature Poem by Tommy Pico

Nature Poem follows Teebs—a young, queer, American Indian (or NDN) poet—who can’t bring himself to write a nature poem. For the reservation-born, urban-dwelling hipster, the exercise feels stereotypical, reductive, and boring. He hates nature. He prefers city lights to the night sky. He’d slap a tree across the face. He’d rather write a mountain of hashtag punchlines about death and give head in a pizza-parlor bathroom; he’d rather write odes to Aretha Franklin and Hole. While he’s adamant—bratty, even—about his distaste for the word “natural,” over the course of the book we see him confronting the assimilationist, historical, colonial-white ideas that collude NDN people with nature. The closer his people were identified with the “natural world,” he figures, the easier it was to mow them down like the underbrush. But Teebs gradually learns how to interpret constellations through his own lens, along with human nature, sexuality, language, music, and Twitter. Even while he reckons with manifest destiny and genocide and centuries of disenfranchisement, he learns how to have faith in his own voice.

The Sounds Of Nature - Poem by Cecelia Weir

The idea of laughter in your poem is great…but you need to work a little on the structure of the poem. Overall I enjoyed it. Report Reply. The happy people attract people to them and in their presence happiness does bloom.. Indeed, laughter is a good thing. It is healthy to laugh and laughter is contagious. Nice poem!

Submit your work, meet writers and drop the ads. Oct The Sounds of Nature. The shrill wake-up call of a rooster Even before the crack of dawn. The flapping of wings in unison before flying away early to catch a worm.

The Sounds Of Nature O, tis so sweet. Who am I That would dare try to repeat The lovliness of a tweet. The flutter of its wings The tiny cute prints Of a little birds feet. The Sounds of Nature O, how beautiful yet afar. Are raindrops against the windshield Of a still parked car.

When I couldn't find anything for a project, I came to this website and searched poems and found this When the day becomes the night and the moon begins to glow, The ocean waves will sing a song nobody knows. As the mountains peak up high and the trees begin to shake, No one will know the song that the trees will make. When the night returns to day and the sun emits its rays, Along comes the powerful acoustic gravity waves. There is music in the air.
