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.

Beach

I feel the cool mist against my face

The ocean speaks to me

The beach, my peaceful place

A blank space

To be free

As I feel the cool mist against my face

Like soft white lace

foam lines the waves in the sea

The beach, my peaceful place

I can be in the teal waves

and families surround me

but I am solitary

alone with no thoughts

just blank

calm

I think most clearly

when I have no thoughts

when I’m blank

I am blank

in the ocean
