“The Blossoms Awake” by Priya Bartlett

Priya Bartlett (age 6)

THE BLOSSOMS AWAKE

The blossoms were closed.

The blossoms
are slowly blooming.

The blossoms
are happy
to see the world.

The blossoms fall
to run away
and build a home.

The blossoms
have children.

from 2016 Rattle Young Poets Anthology

Why do you like to write poetry?

Priya Bartlett: “I like writing poems because ideas are always swirling around in my mind and when my thoughts reach the pencil the swirling lands on the page!”
