Sheep

I get tired at school
Because they're only sheep and
I'm just counting them

Making Notes

With a pen
 and paper,

I write,
 I scribble.
I read,
 and I repeat.

Again,
 again,
 and again.

Playground

Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings
TIME TO SCREAM!

Free time ends
Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

Cheesecake Lover

Who is she?
She is a seventh grader
Plays softball
Wears glasses
She lives and loves cheesecake
Chaddar cheese
Mac n' cheese
Cheesecake 
Who is she?

Feed Sack Dresses

A combination of Haiku and Kyoka

designer originals
from feed sacks
after the chickens were fed

her artist's touch
honed with the aid
of her foot movement
on the treadle machine

4:13 PM

A lot can happen in a minute. A sudden epiphany, A revelation. Opening doors, A realization. Fresh starts, Beating hearts. Good luck, Tearing apart. A lot can happen in a minute.

Pressure

Pressure 

by Brooke Bowers

They say I 
Can handle it,

They say I'm
Strong,

They want me 
To act my age,

When they don't
Understand,

The how much
Pressure can one take,

Before they snap
with no help around.

Number Six

My first friends
Didn’t even know
My name.
They called me
Number six
Because that was
My PE number.
On the day I left
I gave them my
New address
But nobody mailed me.
I made the mistake of
Writing my name
Instead of
Number six.

Bladder Problems in Class

Numbers on 
White board…names written hori-
zontally

Students ask
To go pee…right when class starts – 
THAT’S just wrong…

Bathroom line
Of students who have bladder
Problems – WOW!

People are
Not using lunchtime to do 
Their business 

No one knows
When to do their duties – SER-
IOUSLY?

Girl Speak

Two young girls,
wanting to be called women
but not quite there.
Walking to school
traversing the same path.
Their conversations are the same
yet different to them.
Their words are nothing more
than punctuation 
for their movements -
Waving arms,
open palms,
tilted heads,
rolling eyes,
pursed lips,
nodding heads.
This is girl speak.

My Ambition

Sitting in class bored out of my mind, If I give up, I'll be left behind. I just don't 'cause that goes to show, I have many amitious goals. Maybe one day I'll be the president, Or take care of unable residents. Maybe one day I'll open my own business, Or find the cure to a rare sickness. Who knows what I'll really be, But anyways, want some tea?

Oodles of Joy

"Oodles of Joy"
In the morning of everyday i 
start
I make a food that's really 
smart
Crunch'em, rip'em, and pour'em out 
As saliva pools form in my 
mouth 
Put it in the mic for just about 
three
Impatiently  watching those 
beautiful noodles waiting for 
me
When the time Is up
I Pop it open and take them out 
And start shoving "Oodle's of 
Noodles" into my mouth. 
 
Khalil Wali

Youth

Darkness
That’s all my closed eyes could see while my lips were being captured by an awkward preteen boy. 
My bruised lips from nervous biting matched perfectly with his smooth ones. This moment. 
Of vulnerability and shyness was his and his only to see. 
How new it felt, but not long lasting. 
After all, we were just young middle schoolers wanting to get a taste of something sacred and refreshing. 
Like fine wine, made only for the best and yearned by the curious ones.

Short Middle School poem by Amelia Harmon| Details |

Ordinary, Extraordinary

Every day is the same,
Ordinary,
With me wishing that something would happen,
Making it extraordinary,
The only time that I know I'm extraordinary,
Is when I write,
The words flowing from my fingertips,
At peace,
Not worried what others think of me,
For once,
Peace,
Solace,
In my crazy middle school days,
No worries,
All else fades,
And I am alone with my words,
No cares,
But to create beauty,
Something that will move someone,
That will touch someone in ways they can't explain.
