Some selections from The Light of the Rising Sun:
Lost Little Girl
The Past and the Future
Seven Silly Slime Slugs
Light of the Rising Sun is a collection of poems from 1984 through 1990. There are no remaining journals from this time period. The span takes us from elementary school through junior year at high school. Most of the poems are therefore, very simple and even childish. They, never the less, provide a clear window into the life of an adolescent girl. Most are not worth a second look, but there are some I value and even a few that I consider decent. “The Past and the Future”, for example is one which I think describes my outlook on life, which even after all this time, has remained the same.
