In an attempt to showcase poetry in the school library today, I asked Zoe if she would share a poem with us. She is a fantastic advocate of the beauty of poetry, even making up quick haiku poems on twitter. The following poem is stunning - ENJOY.
THE HEARTBREAK OF DREAMS
I have a dream of the summer whisper of wind high up amongst green boughs
And darts of gold piercing patterns of leaf shadow
I have a dream of the soft movement of water
And ripples with dark underbellies curling on river stones
And I feel the brush of warm air against my cheek
Velvety and fluttering like a bird’s wing
That disappears with a sweet, aching throb of song
And takes the dream and the summer with it
And leaves me, eyes welling
Thanks to Zoe for sharing that beautiful poem with us.
Now go check out the awesomeness that is Zoe's website here where you can find information on all the ways you can interact with this fabulous person as well as seeing the beautiful covers and trailers for her books.
