On September 18th young poets celebrated the love and joy of poetry with San Antonio Poet Laureate Andrea "Vocab" Sanderson.  This notable local figure shared her talent, tools, and devices to enhance the writing experience of our participants. 

Below is an exquisite poetry piece created by participants of this online poetry workshop.

My voice is awake

I am awake.                

My voice is awake like a feather in the wind                

Bursting with song.                

To the sunlight dancing in the window                

My heart is open.                

and I feel like the day is ready to remake               

My voice is awake in the wind and the rain               

My voice is my song                 

And singing with sunlight dancing in the window                 

Basking in the light of a new day               

My voice is awake when I’m singing in the shower and no one can hear me

My voice is awake when I’m shouting for everyone to “wake up!”
