Patriots' Heaven--By Andrea Dietrich--United States

Patriots' Heaven
(Dodoitsu form - 7/7/7/5)

The red sun glows through white clouds
streaked across a blue canvas.
Happy fourth of July
written in the sky.

Andrea Dietrich grew up in Iowa and now resides in Utah with a spouse and two cats. She has two grown children and six grandchildren. Having graduated BYU with a Spanish major/ESL minor, she has spent most of her adult life teaching. It wasn't until 2000 that she began writing in earnest and discovering her "niche" as a writer of lyrical poetry. The internet opened up a new world for her, and she has spent nearly a decade now participating in poetry clubs, acting as a judge of poetry contests for various magazines and for the website Shadow Poetry.
