Stream of Consciousness

2012 National Finalist

Stream of Consciousness

My pen is a water strider skimming the page
Whirling, twirling, unfurling letters into words.
Thirsty for knowledge
Of flora, fauna and flow.

I ride rivers in my dreams
Track treasure on Georgia streams.
Splashing, crashing, geo-caching;
A watershed moment.

Discovering the prize
Not in a box,
But in memories too wild to be tamed
By mere pen and paper.



Katie Rose Dionne, age 13
