by Rhianna, Age 15 , Grade 9

She was forest green

Like black coffee in the morning

And the crunch of gravel under your feet

She was the feeling of being cosmogyral

And alone in

The Universe

When you lay on the ground in fall

And feeling the crunch of warm Autumn under your skin

She was the way ukulele sounds

Playing a tune you haven’t heard

In a millenia

Or the color yellow on a warm Summer day

She’s the flowers in your hair and

The freckles on your skin

She was the

Universe and

All you could ever want

In warm eyes

And cold hands.
