POETRY: Silence Poem

Silence hides in the age of noise Covering behind man-made intrusions The value of silence either ignored or forgotten Without a little silence we are all confused  Yet as the outside world bustles there remains one silence A voice in your head that speaks with no sound That guides you through your turmoils of days It speaks louder than anything and always stays  Yet some … Continue reading POETRY: Silence Poem

In’s and Out’s of Year-Round Schooling

This is what the average student would face if year-round schooling were to be put in place, but the academic advantages may outweigh the loss of these breaks.   As standardized tests have proven, students have trouble retaining information over extended breaks like summer … Continue reading In’s and Out’s of Year-Round Schooling

POETRY: Clouds Poem

The clouds dance and float across the blue, Ever shifting shape, reflecting passer-bys. An amalgamation of shapes on a barren flat, To who owns the infinite blue?  The clouds of grey shroud the star’s glint, Wisps break and fragmentize from the mass. The strokes of color paint the sky’s personality, A timeless trip of the planet’s life. By Clay Patterson, Contributor Patterson writes, “I’ve always … Continue reading POETRY: Clouds Poem
