Dear Kelly, I enjoyed your poem quiete a bit and enjoyed how inspirational it is. It really tells you to hop back on the horse if you have fallen off. Horses are so tall! Can you imagine how big a horse would be if it was twice as big as it currently is?! That would be a very large horse. Gargantuan. Wow
i sit watching the cloudsimplode into the horizonengulfing then releasing aruby red sun whose time issoon over but will return by dawnto give the golden ambrosiaof her rays in which we baskbut she is gone and now
I am living for your poem, “dune sunset,” because it reminds of the summertime. the way you talk about the sun gives me a reminiscent feeling. One line that stands out for me is, “her rays in which we bask” I think this line is such a creative way to talk about the sun because I felt like I can feel the sun’s rays on my face just from reading this line. Another set of lines that stands out for me is, “she is gone and now there is absence of refraction and the electric buzz now it is only me and the moon”. I think these lines paint a picture of the day transitioning to night because you talk about the sun abandoning you and the moon joins you in your loneliness. Your poem reminds me of a book that I once read and maybe you read it too, “Goodnight Moon”. Its about a bunny and its relationship with the moon.
Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next.
Ricardo I think you chose an interesting topic to write about and it was good you could connect with it personally. However, just due to the fact a piece of clothing is designer does not mean it is tailored. It can mean it is well made for a specific body type and it happens to fit you well, but it does not mean its tailored. You can take a gildan…[Read more]
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
