Biography of Rhonda Baker
I have lived in Michigan my whole life. I come from a large family. I have been married for over 20 years. I make my living as a glass artist working with hot glass(blowing glass) . I was an avid writer in school, but got away from it, Until one day I had an opportunity to express myself, and not be judged. To say in words and glass how I see and feel life. So in the fall of 2007 I started to write again. If you need know anything else about me, read my works. Don't be taken in by the titles there is more there then a day or a season, there is a part of me.
Rhonda Baker Poems
A Balancing Act
Life is a balance of work and play A constant balance between night and day The balance between good and bad A balance between happy and sad
Tiny green shoots break from their earthly bond Bringing tulips, hyacinths for which we’re fond Magnolia trees and weeping cherry Vivid white and pinks so merry
Blizzard Causes Snow Day
The blizzard is coming, the blizzard is coming, and the blizzard is here School has been canceled, the children raise up a cheer Sleds unpacked, boots scarves and skates Going to the sled hill, this days gonna be great!
Witches, Witches in the night Across the moon they take flight Potions, spells and hexes too CAREFUL they don't catch you!
A Pirate's Booty (Halloween)
Halloween is approaching, oh what a sight All the creatures that roam on a Halloween night This year a “Pirate” stakes a claim above the rest Guarding her stash of candy, in the old treasure chest
A Fall's In Maui's Bamboo Forest
A hunt for a waterfall in paradise Expecting the water to feel like ice On the Hana Hwy, no falls in sight Searching with all of our might
One last picnic, before fall sets in Having burgers and hotdogs, with family and friend Sharing stories of our summer escapades Laughing and joking over lemonades
My Life With Oprah
In 1986 I started a new chapter in my life New town, new job and being a new wife Just 18, had the world by the tail Going down a path that nothing in this world could derail
April lift your dreary head and cease your tears of rain. The cold winds of winter are gone, and left the birds refrain. Part the clouds up in the sky, and let the sunshine through. Flowers budding in the sun, the sky is lapis blue.
Deep dark red and silver blue The color so dense you can't see through Blowing and shaping to make it sleek A strong thick figure that isn't weak
School's Day End
The school days are winding down New crops emerge from the ground Crickets and frogs fill the night Thoughts of vacation brings new life
Purple of a grape ripe on the vine The purple from a robe, from a majestic time Purple mountain majesty, high up in the sky Purple of a butterfly, just passing by
Winter /Spring Tug Of War
Winter, like a bad penny you keep turning up With your cold wind and snow you’re so abrupt RELEASE your grip and move along! I’m tried of this weather game of ping-pong
Floating down the river in a canoe Left the world behind, just your family and you Ten miles of paddling, around river bends Passed downed logs, turtles, and wrens
Hanging clothes to dry out on the line
Going back to the past... to a much simpler time
The sun is beating down, warming up the day
Tractors in the field, bailing up hay
The sound of summer bug's filling the air
Cat's sunning themselves without a single care
Hoping for a breeze to break this heat
Knowing tomorrow this all will repeat
