T is forTalent

ABC Wednesday Round 6 has reached the letter T. Thank you, Denise, for starting this weekly spot where friends can meet to share their talents by following the link above or the badge to the left.

The talent I would like to showcase today is that of a young poet, the son of a friend. The poet, Kincaid Gould, is only eight (yes, 8) years old.

I will let his poetry speak for itself and let his wonderful feeling for words and nature shine through them.
RAIN
by Kincaid

splash and splatter
drizzle and splinter
dazzle my eyes
a dash of wonder
a dash of light


SHOWERS OF RAIN
by Kincaid

spirals of shimmering vapor
diamonds of puddles
swishing in the wind
flashing ribbon hitting the ground
opening the gate of drizzle.


ROSES
by Kincaid

glory full looks
bleeding for happiness
screaming for joy

gloomily reflecting the glittering sun
meek little leaves


MOUNTAINS
by Kincaid

mountains shimmer
snowy mountain peak
a stream of purple
a line of blue
a flow of pink
and a wave of white light
a rough surface
and a fuzzy inside

mountains shimmer
snowy mountain peak
mountain


THE WINTER BREEZE
by Kincaid

Shiny winds blow
and frosty chills tickle me
breezing past me quickly
diamonds blowing magestically


ROCKS
by Kincaid

smooth and tough rocks
pebbles are chunks of boulders
some rocks are cloudy
and some rocks describe the sunset
some rocks are grassy
and some watery rocks too.


FOREST
by Kincaid

forests gloom with trees
seas of frosted clover
dark and magically
takes me across the bridge of fairies
past the enchanted emerald ruby sky
of mystical dawn

I wish you could see the little scraps of paper on which these are printed. I took a few liberties with spacing, such as centering the lines which Kincaid had positioned from the left of the page. I thought it looked better on the blog. I also put in that line-break in ROSES because I interpreted the next-to-last line to refer to the meek little leaves not the happy flowers. I capitalized all of the titles (the poet used no capital letters) but signed each title with by Kincaid, since he used it with the title on every poem and may have considered it an integral part. Am I right, Kincaid? Consider me one of your first fans - and keep writing!

As a former English teacher, these gave me a particular thrill -- you don't see talent like this that often in one so young! These are fantastic, let alone from an eight year old!! Thanks for sharing them! This is truly TALENT! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Talent indeed - there's rhythm and strength in each piece. One to keep an eye on, I think.

There's a lot of talent there. I hope it's nurtured.

Reader Wil said...

You did well to share these poems, Granny Smith! His poetry is like painting the words in shape and colour. Thanks!

Your talented young friend is so fortunate to live in the electronic age. In times gone by he would have scribbled on scraps and there it would have ended. I'm sure he will go far.

A talented Kincaid. Hard to believe these words were written by an eight-year-old boy. How kind of you to provide this terrific experience for your loyal readers!

Jay said...

He certainly does have a way with words, doesn't he? Such a vocabulary, too! Well done, Kincaid!

I like the ones about the rain best. It's good to see rain showers through the eyes of a child, it brings the magic back.

Joy said...

Wow he certainly has talent, and a poets eye. They were all outstanding but especially liked the last,Forest.
