We're Back

For the third year!

Many thanks to Flagler College Creative Writing and English Major Sarah Wallace who will be busy assisting me this year on the blog. So many poems!

Great things to happen. We started with some quiet poems based on D.H. Lawrence's "White Horse."

All the animals
I think the quiet thing is
you and me and a frog
and a horse and white rose

- July, 2nd

Quiet is like a meadow floating around your
head. Quiet is like a storm around your
room. Quiet is shhh stop talking. Quiet is
nature. Quiet is a garden. Quiet is a word.
Quiet is quiet.

Wow all I can hear is the leaves dropping to the ground
and the squirrels chewing on their nuts and a rhythm

I can hear my mom slicing her ham and the
fan and the wind going through my hair and my sister
quietly trying to sing.

- Ashlynn, 2nd

a poem is peaceful like when the
sun sets.

- Ryan B. 2nd

and it never sleeps it is restless
it will work work to the
end of the universe!

- Nathan, 4th

I am the beach waves crashing
& winding back up again, I am
the blue sky playing with my puppet
clouds. I am the white water sparkling
like the sun. I am the air that
smells like grass. I am the stars in the
sky that twinkle & point to the moon. I am
the wind that whooshes in the night.
I am the bright morning star that
twinkles every morning. I am not a
tree in the swamp. I am not the
lightening that flashes through the sky.
I want to be the horse I see
running. I want to be the
fish swooshing through the water.
I want to be the salty air of the
