I am one of the million leaves
in the wild.
I am Red.
Autumn has given me my bright red dress.
Now, I am one of the leaves in the sea of red.

I am white.
Don’t ask why,
because We all know
If you really can’t guess, you shall go ask snow.

I am green
not just green but lime green, yellowish green.
Blooms filled my vision.
this is the season when new ones come and
old ones go.

I still remain green,
under the bright shining sun.
the light is blinding my eyes,
but I quite happy with my
self, under the extreme heat.

I am a leaf.

This piece was composed during the May 5th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia. During this day, students performed a few biology experiments that examined change (DNA isolation from Kiwi, and a pineapple enzymatic degradation of jello). Afterwards, students were then asked to create poetry, again examining a subject in light of different perspectives. More pieces from this class can be seen here.
