Broken Pieces

Jack Canon's American Destiny

Plucking Poetry from the Air by C.S. Reid #Juvenile #Careers

Friday, February 7, 2014

Calliope tossed under her bedcovers, refusing to open her eyes inside her sunlit-filled room. Monday mornings were always the worst! Soon, her mother would be pounding on her bedroom door, shouting: “Rise and shine, C! Rise and shine!”
It would make getting up an even harder endeavor.
Tap! Tap! Calliope recognized the familiar tapping reverberating from her bedroom windowpane. She forced one eye open and centered on two beaming faces, laughing hysterically through the window.
The faces belonged to none other than Paisley and Stevie—her closest amigos since the first grade. The three friends knew everything about each other. Calliope sauntered slowly across the floor and pushed the window partially up. A cool breeze stirred the curtains, and Calliope wished she had stayed under the covers.
“Are you planning on going to school today, C?” asked Paisley.”

Calliope was simply born to be a poet.
Her prodigious talents are cultivated
under the astute instruction
of Mrs. Rutherford,
her sixth grade teacher.
However, Miranda Michelli is a
considerable, dueling wordsmith in
her own right, as the reigning genius
of their language arts class.
Who will take the penultimate crown
in the Shining Voices Poetry Contest:
Calliope, who pens about the wonders
of nature, or Miranda Michelli, the
resident brainiac in the sixth grade?
