Poem of the Day: 2 Jul 2008

Mountains

You can see three layers.
That tree can see thousands.
Perhaps because it is a thief
Or a cannibal,
Eating visions of its own kind.

Rose M. (Middle School, 2007-8) (p#5017)

One step,

One step,
then
two more.
It 
took twenty 
minutes 
to walk
U
 P.
I was
U
P
HIGH,
very high.
All 
the way 
ON 
the top.
BUT 
then I 
remembered 
I forgot
my
keys,
AND
D

            N I went.

Poetry

Painting a picture with words, 
So powerful, yet invisible,
She spun the blinds man a tale with the
Silk of her soul, and how
The trees danced to the music
Of the wind; a ball sails 
Through the air on the
Waves of her thoughts.

Was he really blind?

Or was it just figurative?
It was their relationship.
A scale.
Both of their eyes shielded
By glass, two people, yet
Two ideas entwined into another,
A new year possibly breaking them
Apart, only for them to find each other
Again,
Like magnet to magnet.
The weaver, the girl, showing him the 
Way,
Even through their wordlessness
Relationship,
Communications made entirely
With smiles and gestures.

Were they mute?

No, she had to fulfill
A hard reasoning with herself,
A silent time to open his eyes,
Show him her world, show him the sun.

Léna G. (Middle School, 2007-8) (p#5019)
