poetry would like to ask question about my poetry?

a lightening bolt screams from the sky and crashes down on my desk.
i run to the kitchen
and grab my cat.
make a cup of coffee
and take a biscotti.
i open the door.
rain drops fall
gently kiss
my face and eyelashes
as i throw my head back
and get lost in the sky.
breathe in the day,
smell of rain
fills me whole,
as i let go
exhale the fight.

Harsh critics always want to classify poems into categories. What makes a poem? Things like rhythm, imagery, ideas. Art can be whatever one decides.

I can't agree with Monk at all. It is the separation between the second and third lines that makes this poem work so well. The first two lines deal with something catastrophic. The third through fifth lines jump from catastrophe into absurdity. That's funny! The rest of the poem is one long sigh of relief from both the tensions cause by both drama and comedy. The whole thing recreates the way I feel when the alarm clock rings. This is good work!

Backyard Water Garden - Water Falls

When was the last time you observed a water fall? There is nothing quite as calming as gentle, cascading water spilling over rocks and into a pool below. It doesn't matter if it is in Yellowstone Park or in your living room. The relaxing effects are the same.
Have you ever considered having a water garden in your own back yard? Having a water fall or water garden in your own yard would allow you to enjoy that same peace and tranquility any time you wish, and it isn't as difficult as you might first imagine. Once you make the choice to build a water garden, you will need to decide if you want to design the garden yourself or perhaps utilize one of the many kits available.

The first thing to consider is the size of the area you have available for your water garden. If you don't have a large back yard, don't let that stop you. Almost any sized area can be utilized for this project.
In recent years water garden kits have become much more readily available. Using a kit can save you quite a bit of time, as most come with just about everything needed. The most common kits are made from high density plastic components that will handle weather of all kinds, and should last for many years. This is obviously the quickest and easiest approach to getting your water garden project completed.

If you should decide to build your own water garden from scratch you will obviously need a bit more time to get your project completed. You can find plans at most local garden centers, and they should have at least a few water garden displays available for you to get an idea of what the completed project might look like. If you should see one you like, ask if they have the plans for that design. Once you decide on a plan you will need the supplies to put it together. Any good set of plans will have at least a basic supplies list included. With some patience and a little help you and your family will be enjoying your new water garden before you know it.

If you are a bit more adventurous and creative, you can even design own water garden. This approach will allow you to incorporate some of the ideas you have seen from other water gardens into your design, and create your own one of a kind masterpiece. If you haven't ever undertaken a project like this before, it might be a good idea to at least speak with a professional landscaper. There might be a few things involved that you haven't considered. But with a little planning, it really isn't as difficult as it might sound at first. Have a look around at several water garden supply stores to get those creative juices flowing.

No matter which approach you decide to take, building a water garden is a fun and exciting project that you and your family will enjoy for many years to come.
