A Collection of Poetry

Leilani Gibbons poses with a flamingo to emphasize the airy feeling of this poetry. The theme of love and nature transcends through not only these pieces but through life itself.

The following are three poems that I have written. They all follow a central theme of love; however, I always try to keep my creative writing ambiguous in order to allow more people to relate to it.

In a doorway between worlds stood Annalise, one world was the mortal life, a home, her home. The other world was death.
