I had to post this one because I was so proud of it when I was a kid, but I wrote it in 2003. I was in seventh grade and only 13. It was published in some book of poems and won a few small poetry contests.


Fading Embers

A star so brilliant and near
Sinking into the horizon.
The golden flames of firelight,
Dancing in the sky above the budding treetops.
A single cloud glowing faint purple and pink,
A gateway to heaven I yearn to take.
I peer down at the shadows crossing mine,
Like fingers stretching to grip the earth.
And the fading sunshine that falls through the trees;
Dancing on the ground, playing a familiar melody.
The mist of the distant river,
Above the fading ember.
And as the star sinks below the horizon,
The Wind's breeze blows warmth to my face.
The sky above is a midnight blue,
Surrounded by silver and purple edges.
The first stars appear above me,
And a smile flickers upon my face
For I know the sun will rise again at 

Dawn.
