Writing from the road, Roseau Minnesota

7th  Hour’s Writing

This week, I’m in Roseau,Minnesota (ten miles south of the Canadian border)writing with the sophomores at Roseau High School. I will be featuring their words here. Enjoy.  This is also the week the farmers burn their fields and bullfrogs start singing.

 

Countryside in Summer
by Gabe Gracza

Along the gravel; kickin’ up the dust

temperature is rising, sun’s moving up.

The glint off the river, shade under trees

mosquitoes and Junebugs out with bees.

Mud and Deet, lilies and hot bare feet

going running at noon.

Oh cross country starts soon.

 

Solitude
by Zach Fevold

Strong
Oh-so-quiet
Lifetime of
Indifference;
To long
Until life
Deems it time to
End.

Ocean

Open
Colorful
Enchanting
Amazing
Never-ending.

 

Crackle
by Michael S.

Crazy
rats
are
climbing
knees and
legs
everywhere.

 

Bells
by A.

Beautiful
Enormous
Loud
Luminous
Sound
of a church.

 

Takes me back
by A.

Taking in the smell, takes me back

to the days of eating grapes

to the no walls room-sharing days

to having seen my brother growing up

to him actually being down

to seeing the rug floor

to feel him hurting in his core

to smell, takes me back.

 

Hero

Heroic
Entity
Righteous
Over-watcher.

 

Eyes
by Geofu

Everything
You
Ever
Seek.

 

Cats
by Haley Ostgaard
I have two cats in my home.

One is big and one is small.

The one that’s small is fast,

while the other one is slow.

They both are very needy.

The big one is always loud.

Even though they’re very different

I love them both the same.
