  • 1. Endless Eternity
    In this small image
    Nothingness
    but everything we know
    life was created and
    lives have ended.
    A baby’s first laugh and
    An old man’s last cry
    All in this small image
    Alessandro
  • 2. The lake, calm and serene,
    Dappled with the rays of the sun
    The water to your ankles
    Clasping you
    Within its cold hands.
    Hearing nothing
    Except the rippling water
    Everything else silent.
    Standing alone, proud
    At the beginning of a brand
    New
    Day.
    Jessica
  • 3.  Listen to the last lionroar .
    And the last hyena laugh.
    Hear the final drop of water splash.
    And the final tree rustle its leaves.
    See the sun shelter itself behind the highest mountain.
    Experience the sight of the sky become slowly splattered with colors:
    Blue, orange, red.
    All is still.
     
    But deep in the savanna nothing is as it seems. For the biggest predator has just awakened, and all that felt once safe, shall be.
    Peaceful.
    Feel the rough grass and shrubs beneath your feet.
    And all the little creatures who live in it.
    Calm.
    Hushed.
    vulnerable

    It took the lives of innocent souls
    Habitat and home,
    Gone
    Agustin
  • 8. Fresh sunset
    Look at the loveliness
    Listen to the birds go to sleep
    Smell the calm air
    Tatto
  • 9. O Coliseum, you smell of history
    Standing there for 2,000 years
    And yet still so stunning
    Daylight shines on you
    In darkness, you enlighten
    I can still hear the gladiators
    I can still taste the blood…
    If I touch your stones, I can see all that again

    Image Poem
    You are red, orange, and hot.
    Burn, burn, please burn me not.
    You are life, you are death, and never tire.
    You are in the woods, or in chimneys, you are fire.
    You
    are
    life,
    you
    are
    death,
    and
    never tire.
    You are in the woods, or in chimneys,
    You are fire

    In his empty belly

    He Tumbles to the ground
    Breathing his last breath

    This scene has it all
    The sky is pure gold
    like a million dollar painting about to be sold

    shining so bright
    I can taste the beauty tonight

  • 16. As I leap into the air, ready to dunk.
    All that is on my mind is me and the basket.
    All I see is the basket and the flashing lights from cameras.
    As I start to fall, the ball gets set free from my hands.
    Swoosh! The ball goes in for another 2 points.
    As I come crashing to the ground,
    I can hear the crowd go wild.
    My heart beats faster than ever
    As the buzzer goes off.

    Spreads its wings
    It hits the shore
    With a soft melody
    That night
    It continues hitting the shore
    Without any lights above its head
    The ocean went to bed
    Raouf
  • 19. Winter
    A windy night, storms coming and going, the stars barely visible
    And as I walk my footprints imprint the ground of an expanse of white frosting
    Softly and silently snowflakes tumble down
    Then stop for a moment and open your eyes
    Up-close you see beautiful and fragile figures with intricate designs, none are exact
    They fall like graceful dancing fairies
    The wind blows on
    And till dawn comes, it continues on
    Shreeja

  • 21. Built with pure beauty he stands alone,
    Made of strong muscle and bone,
    He is big and mighty but has not sinned ,
    For he runs as fast as the wind,
    And his mane flows from side to side,
    With his head raised with pride,
    He will run the plains to the very last day,
    He will soon die, but his soul will stay.

  • 25. It is yet another glorious spring day
    With trees and flowers blooming away
    The rays of light seem to dance on the clear water
    There’s magic in the air
    The mountains seem to glare from there
    The sky was gold as the sun grew old
    It was yet another glorious spring day
    That prompted everyone to say
    WOW! It’s another dazzling day.

  • 26. Cherry blossoms so pale a pink they seem white

  • 30. The snow crushed under his paws,
    Tired, and hungry.
    Climbing and struggling to find a good spot.
    The sound of his claws stumping on the snow,
    The chill from the breeze
    The white mountains behind him,
    And the graysky. As tired as he is,
    He continues his journey,
    A struggle for survival.
    Anouk

    I am an African girl
    The sun is shining brightly on my face

    I am a girl
    I am an African girl

    Just take one bite of delight and see how it is rich.
    Hear the crunch, from its toasted crust,
    Then you’ll slowly start to lust.
            your teeth, into its mouthwatering meat,
    Sink
    Take just one bite, and your lips will touch its wheat.

  • 40. As I’m walking down this narrow roadI wonder…If this is the right place to beAs I try to peak through the stiff fogI think…Should I want you here with me?As I try to find out if this road will ever end
    I wonder…
    What’s behind those huge rough trees?
    As the cold wind blows the leaves onto my face
    I think…
    Did I go the wrong way?
    As my body starts to shiver and my fingers turn numb
    I wonder…
    If I will make it out of this cold road alive
    As the tree branches start to shake
    I think…
    Will they ever fall off?

  • 47. The majestic skies,
    All of the light,
    So orange and so bright
    Far away from life,
    Clouds reflecting the sun’s rays,

    You praise the earth,
    Its beauty
    One day the sun is bright orange,
    Next day, the clouds disappear
    You can’t help but wonder,
    You wonder what the world will be,
    If we keep on destroying it
    Destroying natural art
