Earth

by Samiksha aged 9

No one knows Earth,
How it talks,
How it walks,
How it fights.

All we know,
Is that earth…
Is our home!

Eyes

by Samiksha aged 9

Eyes black,

A demon trap,

I can’t see in you,

For sure that’s true.

Eyes red,

Like blood in the mirror,

Dipping down,

You’re full of terror.

Eyes orange,

Like a Halloween night,

I’m coming to you,

Like larva will

The Outpost

Tanks plodded out of their garages

It punched and even kicked,
pushed too.
it had fallen.

Last week I saw the sea shouting.

The Cloud

by Imogen Allison-Flower aged 10

Recently life hasn’t been very loud,
There aren’t many people around any more,
The sky is a bore.

Across the world I drift
The water I drop gives every living thing a

My Mum

by Daisy W aged 11

This poem,
this little rhyme,
this tiny ditty,
is not about a crush
or a partner.
But my Mother.

You see,
she means sooooo much to me,
the way she calls me Pumpkin

Solar Eclipses

by Iliana aged 10

A Solar Eclipse isn’t just a time in space, the sun and moon meet,
The grace in the movements as they approach each other,

Coffee

by Lola Sattar

Caffeine shots
I love it
Dizzy
Nausea
Overlapping
Ripples on the shore

Quivers shooting down your spine
Molten ice
Frozen lava
Not a word,
A deafening cycle

Find Peace with Him

by Alisa Gudkova

My friend,
We walked up the steps to each other…
For every step up we paid
But no coins, no likes on social cage, no grams…
With our own currency, filled with undivided suffer

Casted Shadows

by Aditi Vishwanath

Shadows are only black,
formed either at the front or at the back;
Perhaps, it’s a coward, shy to be free,
it always accompanies us, too shy to flee.

But my mind’s questioning,
why shadows are

They make a beautiful scene.

My Rainbow Garden

by Lily McKay aged 9

I love my rainbow garden
It explodes constantly with a kaleidoscope of colour

Red is for the plump, juicy tomatoes
Preparing themselves for a feast

Orange is for the gigantic sunflowers
That warm my heart

Yellow is
