“Western Haiku” by Lucy Johnston

Lucy Johnston (age 11)


Loral, a snowy beak,
An ark
into flood.



a fountain frozen
the flower kept



an intelligent eye
relays data.

from 2016 Rattle Young Poets Anthology


Why do you like to write poetry?

Lucy Johnston: “I love writing poetry because I can express my emotions while writing anything I think of. There is no limit to poetry and I use that to my advantage. Poetry can free my mind, and overall I just love writing it.”
