One Leaf

One leaf
can break a branch.
One discovery can make flight.
One drop can stop a drought.
One brick can make a wall.
One wall can make a house.
One act can save a life.
One voice can change a song.
One person can change the world.

Ben, From Feluga’s Fabulous Fourteen.

Leaf Life – June Perkins

I love the optimism of the young.  This poem was written during Ripple and then shared in the Feluga Fabulous Fourteen Writing Anthology.  It has been slightly edited before web publication here.

A Little Fire

Fire – By June Perkins

A little spark turned into a fire
It jumped out the fire place
Creeping . . .crawling… creeping….growing
Bigger and bigger
Red and yellow flames leaping everywhere
He got bigger than a giant.
Bigger than a giant
Turned into a monster
Then he was
Gone!
Gone!
Gone!
