Oranges

Hey guys…
Super busy with homework right now, but I found this awesome poem while I was in class and I happen to LOVE it. Take a look and read it 😛 I hope you like it! Gonna go do history homework!

Oranges
By. Gary Soto

The first time I walked
With a girl, I was twelve,
Cold, and weighted down
With two oranges in my jacket.
December. Frost cracking
Beneath my steps, my breath
Before me, then gone,
As I walked toward
Her house, the one whose
Porch light burned yellow
Night and day, in any weather.
A dog barked at me, until
She came out pulling
At her gloves, face bright
With rouge. I smiled,
Touched her shoulder, and led
Her down the street, across
A used car lot and a line
Of newly planted trees,
Until we were breathing
Before a drugstore. We
Entered, the tiny bell
Bringing a saleslady
Down a narrow aisle of goods.
I turned to the candies
Tiered like bleachers,
And asked what she wanted –
Light in her eyes, a smile
Starting at the corners
Of her mouth. I fingered
A nickle in my pocket,
And when she lifted a chocolate
That cost a dime,
I didn’t say anything.
I took the nickle from
My pocket, then an orange,
And set them quietly on
The counter. When I looked up,
The lady’s eyes met mine,
And held them, knowing
Very well what it was all
About.

Outside,
A few cars hissing past,
Fog hanging like old
Coats between the trees.
I took my girl’s hand
In mine for two blocks,
Then released it to let
Her unwrap the chocolate.
I peeled my orange
That was so bright against
The gray of December
That, from some distance,
Someone might have thought
I was making a fire in my hands.

Weekend FUN!

hey guys….
I have been in Denver all weekend cause my school has a 4 day weekend since the 1st semester is ending and for MLK day! We had hockey games here, so it was a reason to come up! I used a lot of my saved up money to go buy clothes and stuff, but it was totally worth it and so much fun! I wil later post all the pictures I got of the city life. I know that this i s a super small city compared to New York or Chicago but its a huge city compared to where I live in a small town. I will post some later:)

This photo me and my sister were taking turns taking pictures of each other cause she wants to learn more about photography and taking pictures. I was teaching her little tips and stuff and she captured this awesome photo of me, so I’m posting. I know I havent posted for a while but now that school wont be so crazy I will have WAY more time. I will probably get on my schedule of at least one pos very other day.

Hi guys…
Sorry that I haven’t posted in a while but it’s the end of the second quarter so we have a bunch of tests and so have been studying, also we had hockey this entire weekend so I know that my blog feed has been really boring this past month, but I promise I will get back to my regular daily posting life. Anyway this is a scanography photo that I took the other day. Scanography is awesome cause it uses no ink and it can take photos of yourself, which is awesome.
Bye

Hey guys…
I have had a wonderful time but I am pretty bummed that that I have only two more days to enjoy. This is a picture of my and my friend at our hockey tournament and I LoVe it so much. Tomorrow I am going skiing with about 7 of my friends. Everyday my mom keeps waking us up an hour earlier cause for school we have to get up at 6 o’clock. I don’t mind but I just keep remembering that now I don’t get another break until spring. We haven’t had a snow day this year either! Annoying! Any who I am going to go to bed, cause I am having to get up tomorrow at seven o’clock and when you fall asleep at 1 o’clock in the morning.
Bye you guys!!! -smileatthiserror
