Cheung Chau Bun Festival

Cheung Chau Bun Festival

By Alex Lam, age 15, Hong Kong

To start this year’s Cheung Chau Bun Festival,
Dancers perched on stilts and costumed in the head and body of a lion
Prance and weave around a crowd of 50,000.

Beach

Beach

Cylinders of dark water licking, retreating,
Tumbling like laughing, green glass;
Drawing closer to her toes, touching, tasting,
Trailing artifacts of the past.

By Mackenzie Dorsey, age 16, Virginia

You start the warm-up, stretching
Your muscles, so they don't rip
Into 12,000 tiny threads like the guts of an orange.
