Beach

Beach

By Alice West, age 17, London

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

The Run

The Run

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.

The Disguise

The Disguise

By Rosemary, age 14, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Darkness shall be engulfed by light;
We hope darkness goes away.
Light shall swallow it with all its might;
We hope darkness remains at bay.

World of Reflection

World of Reflection

By Abhinav Mazumder, age 14, India

As I strolled down the busy street,
A puddle of water fell into my sight;
I stopped myself before the puddle
To glance down to see my reflection in it.

Morning Light

Morning Light

By Romila Santra, age 14, Kansas

If every morning to you is a fuss,
Just stop and listen to every bird’s chorus.
Open the door,
And step down to the grassy floor.

The Heart Knows

The Heart Knows

By Jaden Atencio, age 9, Colorado

Having adventures wouldn’t be as fun
If I didn’t have that special one.
Love keeps us extremely tight;
The heart knows we shall not fight.
