    The poem was very well done! I liked thinking about how small things can look unimportant, but how they can spur emotions and writing abilities like yours.

    You have insight far beyond your years! I can’t wait to continue to see your writing talent develop.

    Very well done Courtney. I feel like I am there touching, looking and exploring the leaf patterns with you. It reminds me to slow down and really enjoy what is around me. I love nature too.
