April is National Poetry Month, a time when we celebrate poetry and recognize how it has shaped American culture. This year, KUT is participating in National Poetry Month by sharing poems written by students in the Blank Page creative writing programs at Kealing and Fulmore Middle Schools and the Writers' Workshop at Rawson Saunders School. You can read the and listen to the poems here, and you can also listen to the poems read on KUT 90.5 FM throughout the month of April.

Read by Rabbi Neil Blumofe

I walked slowly,

taking my time,

pink and orange streaked the sky,

moon still in the morning,

plane trails,

birds in formation.

I wish I had my camera.

I wish I could capture it all in image,

but there’s more,

smell of exhaust, grass

breakfast tacos from the food truck

on the corner

sounds of cars honking

and gravel shifting under my feet.

I walked slowly.

taking it all in,

I almost miss my bus
