Young Poets

By Todd-Michael St. Pierre

You speak for the lakes, the trees and the birds
You say what they'd say if they had the words.

Make PEACE and be proud, choose well every choice
Speak HOPE and speak loud, you are Nature's voice.

Speak with respect now, for jungles and streams
Speak for all wildlife and dream giant dreams

Speak with great courage, speak up and speak out
Write with a whisper or write with a shout.

Stand up young poets for clean air and river
Free verse or lyric; your message delivers.

Truth for the future citizens of earth
Speak of your freedom your friends and self worth.

Speak for tomorrow and though you're still young
Speak for the Forest, your pen is her tongue.

The world waits to hear your songs still unsung
Words posses power, you can write the wrongs

Teach us and lead us with Poems and with songs
Speak now for nature, for trees and for birds.

Defenders of Earth choose careful your words!

My Dream (A vision of Peace)

By Todd-Michael St. Pierre

Where the mountains touch the sky
Where poets DREAM, where eagles fly
A secret place above the crowd
Just beneath a silver-lined cloud.

Lift your eyes to a snowy peak
And see the soon-to-be we seek
Whisper DREAMS and let them rise
To the mountains old and wise.

Climbers climb, it's time to try
Where the mountains touch the sky
Take me there. Oh take me now...
Someway, Someday, Somewhere, Somehow!

Where the ocean meets the sky
Where dolphin dance and seagulls fly
A place in DREAMS, I know so well
The sea inside a single shell.

Far across the living sea
A pale blue possibility
Beyond the castles made of sand
Tomorrow in a small child's hand.

Only DREAMERS need apply
Where the ocean meets the sky
Take me there. Oh take me now...
Someway, Someday, Somewhere, Somehow.

A common ground for one and all
Behind the crystal waterfall
Where Peace flows like a mighty stream
Like Dr. King I have a DREAM.

Imagine such a goal in sight
For red and yellow, black and white
New Delhi, Peking, Kenya, Rome
Earth is the place that we call home.

Baghdad, Bangkok, Tel Aviv
One race HUMAN, we still believe
It matters what we say and do
This DREAM is ME, this DREAM is YOU!

When walls of hate have fallen fast
When prejudice has long since passed
When last is first and first is last

Come DREAM with me
Where the forest reach the sky
Wake up and DREAM and don’t be shy.

No thorns of war, a perfect rose
This is where Gandhi's DREAM grows
Whisper now; let the DREAM begin
It's time to trust the truth within.

This is where we seek and find
A gift in being colorblind
DREAM on DREAMERS, hopes are high
Where the forest reach the sky.

Take me there. Oh take me now
Someway, Someday, Somewhere, Somehow.

Now, listen close, the future calls...
Build your bridges and tear down walls!
For time has taught and so it seems
Realities are born of DREAMS!

Blessed are the peacemakers...

The Cat and the Cartoon

By Chitra Padmanabhan

The mouse in the movie came out of the hole
The cat watching the TV gave a low growl
There were no more mice in the house
She had seen to that
Cartoons are so cruel,
the tabby thought
Why should they make me dream of
the meals I no more have?

 Sunday with Dad

  By Saakshi Khanna

A Sunday is so typical
when Dad is around
The morning starts
With a loud TV sound.

One groan from my sister
and another from me
Doesn't melt his heart
To let us sleep for a minute or three.

Mom tries to catch up
On her wee bit of sleep
For she knows Dad is there
To make a cup of tea.

But once we are all up
It all seems so bright
For that's the only day
When Dad has all the time.
