Fifth-grader Deeya Datta's poem chosen for publication

Last spring, Deeya Datta, a 5th grader from Snellville, submitted a poem to a contest held for student writers in grades K-12 throughout the United States and Canada. Her poem “Water” (below) was selected from thousands of entries as one of the ten best in her division. Poems are selected for literary merit, creativity, and social significance. Deeya received a copy of the anthology in which it was published and a $25 check. Deeya’s poem and other Top Ten poems may be seen at poeticpower.com .

Creative Communications sponsors the contest to offer a creative outlet to young writers of poetry and essays. In the past 20 years, the company has given over $1 million in grants and awards to students, schools, and teachers. Divisions for the contests are K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12, and several contests are held each year. See their activity at facebook.com/poeticpower, their blog at  powerpoetic.wordpress.com.


Water
Water gushes, roaring loud,
Over mossy slates of rock
Thinner, thinner it does grow
Until it trickles drop by drop
Reaching towards the glossy pond
Surface so serene
First drop reaches tranquil pool
Disrupting peaceful dreams
Ripples spread across the dream like creek
Upturning bubbles of foam
Reaching across in angry curls
An ashen fire grows
Milky droplets hit the edge
Its journey is finally at its end
