THE SKY BLOOMS WITH LIGHT by Katie, age 9















The Sky Blooms with Light


Leaves drift through
the open
window,
onto the
rug.
Balloon-shaped clouds levitate
above the sun
and  
the sky blooms with light.  
Branches sway
up and down.
The rainbow is tired from
bending its back
across the
glittery lagoon.
An arc of colors
reflects onto my gray
ceiling.
Rain drops trickle
onto the field of grass.


About the Author

My name is Katie. I am nine years old. I live in San Francisco with my mom, dad, brother Khenny, and my new born baby sister. When I grow up I want to be a fashion designer. I design with my friends. We have a notebook full of dresses that we drew. I love reading. My favorite sports are gymnastics, dance, swimming, and football. At home we speak English but my mom is from Laos. I went there when I was little and again when I was eight. I am also the author of the poem, “Frozen in a Row” and the graphic mini-novels, Halfway There and Backwards.


Here is the same piece as a graphic poem:
