Dream State Slip-Gown

By Isabelle Shachtman

The sound of the train past midnight And a clear sort of light seek my room and cheeks Leaving the layers of darkness, moon, and house light stale and stark As if the lighter colored sheaths of air in the dark are unbreathable As if I’m lying to myself about what I really see through the night


the code of separation

By Katie Stanos

7 november 2017 (sight) your veiny, wan feet/expansion/between you/the floorboards/creation of      space smacking the granite countertop breaks      infinity they say they said/stare into the threads of your black sweatshirt/the threads have threads and those threads have threads/and so


Treading Water

By Katherine D. Westbrook

This is the pretend-dream, where I am teaching you to swim, and your body and my body remember their names in the water.

We pull them from the lake where they’ve been drowning, covered in salt, covered in sweat and horsetails.


Being Cosmic Dancers: because what else would we be?

By Jaden Gragg

We live on our floating planet, this hunk, this rock, we are so small. 


Green Sanctuary

By Karen Lieffring

Come with me into these memories Where grown-ups are not allowed Across the deep concrete river Where in giant hollow owl’s eyes You can hear the hidden bears’ growls. Beneath high branches curved like arches Their leaves intertwined Like a patchy living ceiling For this green chapel This childho


Yes, I am a Dreamer

By Mary Kaitlan Schmitt

Yeah, I’m a dreamer, I dream of so many things.

But do you know what separates all you other dreamers from me? You all actually work to achieve your dreams, you dream about the future and what you want to become.


Balance Verses Chaos

By Catherine Strayhall

Left only is the echo of the water’s laugh The birds’ little whispers still can be heard. The moon isn’t full, it’s only half Sun’s clear rays have been made fuzzy and blurred. Melody misses Harmony-her friend Nightime longs to hear the old barn owl’s hoo. The sowing thread has split and needs a


time like falling snow

By Skylar Pappenfort

Memories, oh memories those fine grains of sand Escape between your fingers to the beating of the band Murmuring in harmony upon a demure heart Oh what a lovely pas de deux in which we find our part Rows of fleeting smiles and a million bluebird skies Intent on brightly shining as they pass befor


Universe

By Weston Franklin

The Universe A place made of solar systems, stars, and planets. To me, Is just a fading reality. A dream someone dreamed last night. A dying star of happiness that is my heart. A town of my dreams, By the sea, That a tidal wave hit, Throwing it into nothingness. I made that tidal wave, Me, my dre

By Angel Jewel Dew

If Only

By Linh Lam

If only that person were on the same planet. If only that person were in the same hemisphere. If only that person were in the same continent. If only that person were in the same nation.

Dreaming of my Perfect World

By Elianna Oliver

Who wishes... she could live in the sunny, tropical Bahamian world for a summer she could experience the ear-popping adventure on an airplane going place to place visiting the breathtaking sights around planet Earth she could put her toes in the squishy sand everyday smelling the salty fresh air


Dreams

By Dawson Plaster

I Wish To create new and innovative objects For the joy of finding a new building block of the universe To write the published wonder that will spread throughout the world To smell the delicious food in front of me, soon to be in cookbooks everywhere For the tiring but interesting duty of running


I Wonder

By Emma Smith

I wonder. I wonder who the person I’ll become in twenty years will be. I wonder if I’ll be helping someone in desperate time of need, or saving someone’s life on an empty street. I wonder if the mountains I climb Will be filled with sunshine as bright as the stars in the middle of summer, Or roug


A Wish

By Carly Pearch

I Wish I could travel across the world seeing different places and meet different people,

I Wish I could travel through time and space seeing different times and worlds,

I Wish I could fly and explore the sky and all its wonders,


Who I Want To Be

By Shantha Burt

Of all the questions, one stands out. Who do you want to be? I want to be someone whose life is overflowing with adventure. I want to travel and explore. It would be great to see monuments as bold as stars. I want to have as much fun as a kid with a balloon. I would love to tour the wonderful wor


Oh, Dreaming Dreams I've Only Dreamt to Dream Before

By Emma Olinger

Standing in the middle of the stage microphone taped to my face singing my heart out

Handcuffing the mass murder who has been loose for decades lowering his head into the cop car


Hope

By Marlen Salazar

My hope is that we can forget about hate, our prejudices, our unneeded bias.

Forget about making others feel bad about themselves, oppressing them for being different. We can forget about our pointless wars, and instead, focus on restoring peace and order.
