The Wish of the Akai Hana

Hixson Middle School
St. Louis County, Missouri

Simple and sweet
Dream-like and divine
The open sky we see on a starry night
A sunlit field blooming with great joy
The calming cradle of a mother's lullaby
Vibrant honey dripped rhythms of an orchestra
Specks of stardust reflected in the eyes of a child
A lively tune of a piano plays at dawn's rise
The flowers’ petals escape with the breeze
But will always return with a feeling of want
They will find their ways
And once again create
A dream
