"Entangling branches of rainfall convene in a synergy of the starsTheir very being enhanced and illuminated by the bleeding sun

The old man will speak to me, it is coarse, dry, and worn
Splatters and streaks in the sky, the paint doth turn into day
The world has spun a million times, yet here I am today
May the years and eons pass
The bygone era fade to ash
Through it all, placid I stand
For though I've seen it all before
A sigh of relief, it's here at last
My memories are petals
Delicate and pure as the dance around the air
They melt as they touch the ground
Yet alas I fail to feel despair
Nature's misty breath, laden in dew
Glaze the world in life anew
The arid domain of ice and frost
Can never reclaim what we never lost
So yes, we have seen this all before
Yet every time the more precious
As the intricate dalliance of raindrops do fall
Staring at those flowers, petals arching like wings
I can't help but hunger for more." 

- Victoria, a middle school student from White Salmon, WA
