    Seventh grader’s poem selected for publication

    Suhavi SinghA Fort Couch Middle School student is now a two-time published poet. A poem by seventh grader Suhavi Singh was recently selected for publication in the Creative Communication Poetic Power Contest. Suhavi’s poem, “Fuzzy Angel,” will be included in the organization’s anthology, “A Celebration of Poets.”

    This marks the second time that Suhavi has achieved this honor. In May 2022, Suhavi’s poem, “Freely Free,” was selected for publication. In addition, as a fifth grader, she placed among the top five in the annual Mahatma Gandhi Creative Writing and Art Contest.

    Creative Communication writing contests are open to students in kindergarten through grade nine. Entries are judged by writers and educators based on literary merit, creativity and social significance. Less than 50 percent of submitted poems are accepted for publication.

    According to its website, “Creative Communication is devoted to the promotion of writing, teaching and appreciation of student writing. The intent of our student writing contests is to motivate student writers. The top entries are published in an anthology that will record the creative insights of today's student writers.”

    Fuzzy Angel

    written by Suhavi Singh

    Ever wonder
    rover can't stay on this planet
    as long as you do?
    You adore the way he jumps up and down
    and barks with glee
    as you return from school.
    He cuddles with you when you're blue.
    A pure, sympathetic soul.
    Always by your side.
    Snoozes by your feet.
    A true best friend.
    All the love you give out
    in several decades,
    rover can give in one.
    When all the love is given out,
    rover's job is done.
