More Youth Writing

Happy Tuesday! Here are three poems from Ethan Itkin, who took Frequency’s youth writing workshop. Ethan, like his brother Dylan, whose work was featured her last week, is a writer and filmmaker. The movie they directed, Robot and Boy, plays on Sunday, Feb. 23rd at noon (admission is free) at the RISD Museum as part of the Providence Children’s Film Festival.

Camera

Frames of a time long forgotten,

Of a day of surprise,

A simple pleasure,

A small joy.

Monday morning,

Tuesday afternoon,

Wednesday lunchtime,

Thursday breakfast,

Friday night,

Saturday midmorning,

Sunday dinner.

The ringing of a school bell,

The endless possibility of a weekend,

A vacation like no other,

The last day of school.

Times of happiness,

Of joy,

Of sadness,

Of pain,a

Of wonder,

Of intrigue,

Of possibility and reality.

All of these moments and more,

Captured by the click of a button,

The flash of a shutter,

The magic of a camera.

Branch

Broken from a tree,

Now lonely as can be,

Branch has fallen,

Below what’s crawlin’,

Above the ground of earth.

One

Falling,

Running,

Jumping,

Sinking,

Dodging,

Flying.

Eating,

Walking,

Watching,

Crying,

Seeing,

Being.

Doing,

Making,

Listening,

Creating,

Hearing,

Greeting.

Smelling,

Touching,

Jogging,

Leaping,

Fleeing,

Feeling.
