I am the moon reflecting off the calm, blue water.
I am a balloon drifting higher and higher, hovering above the clouds.
I am a raindrop plummeting down from the bright sky.
I am a tree feeling the nourishment from the sun.
I am the leaves fluttering down from a magnolia tree.
I am the water flowing down the river swiftly and rapidly.
I am the bird flying over the horizon.
I am the spirits escaping into nothingness.

    I have been most impressed by the creative minds of these wonderful young people. And to Sophie, your poem explores such depth and feeling. Congatulations to this wonderful program and to all the wonderful poets who submitted their work for consideration.

    Best wishes,
