Paws & Pens: Eighth

Seven wonders of the world,But I’m not satisfied.All of them, crumbling in the pages of history.Time passes but they are paralyzed-Standing. Withstanding. Until they erode intoThe crevices, the alcovesOf the outgrown. Seven wonders of the world,From Alexandria to Babylon butWhere do they goWhen memory drives them to fiction?What do I knowIf even God is practicing…

Paws & Pens: Refuge

You were looking for a place to stay,A roof over your head,Shelter for the night,When you stumbled upon my heart. You took in the open doors,The warm glowing fire,The smell of comfort,So you made yourself at home. You settled in,And thought,This place will do.And you never left.

Paws & Pens: Dear You

Student Submission from Thomas grade 11 Through the pain of it all, we grow. Through the failure of it all, we know. We learn, we break, we heal our bones.

Paws & Pens: As a Story

Trail soft fingers down my spine,And slowly ease the cover open.I will let my pages flutter,Falling softlyOn each side.Don’t force me open,Or my spine will crack.Softly, gently,Cherish the pages I show you,And in due time,Let me show you the rest,Until we get to the blank,Unwritten ending,Waiting for your ink-To fill in a chapter for yourselfIn…

Paws & Pens: Salt to the Sea

Perhaps when the fire rained, And the motherland burned, There was no one left to blame. Perhaps when the pipe dream ends, And nothing was earned, They finally see past pretend. Perhaps when the children screamed, And the despair churned, Our tears washed salt to the sea.

Paws & Pens: May Flowers Bloom On Your Birthday

May flowers bloom on your birthday, For you are the light sun and the spring rain. Your smile chases dark clouds away; Your smile erases my pain. May birds sing for you on your birthday, For your beauty inspires ode upon ode. Your eyes are bright, warm as rays, And your fair skin fairly glowed….
