"Colorado" by Jayden Taylor

Updated: Jul 7, 2022

On a summer's ever

Where the mind can breathe

On a timeless shore

Where troubles seemed to be ignored

A spacious time zone

Surrounded by the smooth scent of pine cones

Where the swaying of the trees

Remind you of the feeling of relief

The feeling of being free

In a world filled with dull debris

Dwelling on the possibility

Of no responsibility.

Gazing at the dimming sun

Without a goal left undone

Body shady by the mountain's shadow

Glad to spend the last few hours in Colorado.

Jayden Taylor, sophomore (class of 2024), says of his writing “I’m really into funny writings, realistic but fictional writing, and really whatever comes to my head. My writings might be peaceful, serious or funny. I don’t plan to take writing seriously it’s just something overtime that I’ve picked up on and enjoy.”
