Another amazing student poem included in the Egg in Nest Art and Poetry Show. FORWORD, at Halle Cultural Arts Center until May 5, 2012. Kids art classes with writing interspersed? What could be better! And right here in the Raleigh/Cary, NC area.
Rachel Zino, age 14
sleeping little flowers
close up as the day draws to its end
silently waiting for the morning sun to sound
the golden rays will shine through soon
but til then, they’re left with the eerie glow of the moon
then it happens
the gold wakes the sleeping little flowers
into the crisp morning air
dew runs off of their arms
they stretch and absorb the sun’s offerings
without worry, they wake to the horizon bending.
