Steal My Sunshine

Sand pouring through an hourglass,
a whisper in the wind
A river who has run his course,
a true and faithful friend.
A random act of kindness,
the smallest work of prose
A black bird who has learned to fly,
the beauty of a rose.
The harshest night of fear turned 'round
by a warm and gentle touch...
These are the things we notice least
and yet we mourn so much.

Great job! Simplicity in symbolism, how true poetry should be. All of us here at Johns Creek are truly proud of you.

I am a teacher and after reading your poem and knowing why you wrote it, I was moved to tears. I can only hope that in some way I can have an impace on those I teach the way this teacher obviously had such an enormous impact on you. Wonderfully written.

Lauren,
I am so proud of you! Your poem made me think of my dad and Mrs. Rudder. I, too, have experienced loss and your poem causes me to feel a sense of bittersweetness.
Well Done!
Mrs. Collins

I loved the poem and the picture. You are mature beyond your years to realize how important the "little" things truly are. Keep writing and snapping your camera!!!!
