WHAT IF your bed was a t.v.
you would get to watch t.v. Although
it would not be great, just think all
the bright lights shining in your face
you would get no sleep and imagine the
hard screen on your back you would
be hurting all over.
Summer is like having
your body melt to the
ground and turn into
slime! It is like the
wind will not blow any
more. It is like the
cold water turns warm.
Like there are no more
pools to swim in. It is
like your blood turns
to boiling water.
I dreamed that I was named paper.
I dreamed that I could not eat.
I dreamed that there was a little pond with a cat in it and
I saved it.
I dreamed by best friend changed schools.
I dreamed that there were so many of me but they
were all blue and red and different colors.
I dreamed everyone in the world was my family.
The park has an upside-down tree.
The park is a circle.
The past has some weeds that have never been cut.
Sunrise, sunset, midday on
the beach, paths, ways, sand. Birds,
just hours for the birds. Time can’t
come time can only leave. The
moon came out the sound washed
away, time ran out, the birds,
well they went extinct.
Fairies have wings that can fly
Fairies go in circles
They go round and round
If you look very close you will
See the fairies’ dust it is yellow
The Birds are flying left and right then up, down,
up, down, looping now they’re flying north south west east
the south now they’re almost there feeling the wind in their
faces nighttime in their nest . . . morning flying south
next at their destination the warmest nest
little droplets fall from the
sky like tiny bullets and
when you ice skate it is
like soaring in the sky like
a bird all the trees freeze
and frost winter is beautiful.
polar bears as white as
snow the ice frosts in
the atlantic the ice looks
like little crystals put
I am a lion
I can smell my prey
I can see it in the distance
As I try to get it, it runs away
I feel wind blow as it starts to rain
It’s time to go home I thought.
I am molded in a box.
I am not a lump.
I am painted rainbow.
I am outside.
I am made by a person.
I am out in the garden.
I am not a person though.
I was made with hands.
I am outside for decoration.
I am clay.
Outside smells like butterflies.
I feel bricks under me.
I see grass with ants.
Jack and the Mean Stock
It was like climbing a never
ending rope and then I saw a
black hole to nothingness but
something lurked beyond it
then I lost grip and fell
You can hear the running water flowing
across the pebbles, and the forbidden beast
roaring from the zoo, and the taste of the
fresh air, and the moss growing on
the rocks, and my Dad calling for me
to get in the car and go home, and
then when you got a view of it, it
was very special.
Many water drops everywhere, and the
running water in between my fingers, the tie-
dye oil sticking to my hands, the echoing and
whispering coming from it, and a magenta color
from the cave reflective of the sun, rough and smooth
textures from the rocks also.
Great person, great person, great person.
This person needs to be grounded. This
person learns his lesson, but he is still grounded.
I wanted to know if this is fine, and yes of course.
The winds blow through my when I
breathe. But when I sit in front of fire, I
feel this huge pain. When I go to the
beach it feels so good to lay in the
sun. Or feels so soft to jump into the
the truth about cats
Cats live nine lives.
When they scratch you on purpose that
means he’s nice. If a cat eats hair
it will spit out gold. A cat can drive
a car. It is safer for a cat to fall
from a high place than a low place.
The truth about dogs
Did you know that dolphins can grow wings
and eventually fly. Did you know that cats
can eat a spoon in three seconds. Did you
know that squirrels can do curious tricks,
did you know that they stick their tongues out
when they are thirsty.
Teal is the color of the waves
Teal is the color of my new
Jeans and the pretty diamond
but today tears are driving
down my face the rain
Is here there is a tornado
A really bad tornado
and I’m sad
Dear R, you are so grace-
ful. You are the first letter
of my name and you are the
last letter in my last name.
I hope you can run fast
because the letter Y will flip
over and chase you down.
But if you stay in your
house Y will not get you.
So I’d say stay in your house.
Run and lock your door.
Make a cake and smell
it for some random reason.
on 4 legs
The leaves are on the tree
it rains the leaves fall off the tree
I had a dream about a tree
As I ride my bike on the sidewalk
I think of a sunset and it is there
My dog comes and sits with me as the sun goes down.
My Dog’s bark
My dog’s bark is
like a tomato stuck
in your mouth.
Like a sour voice trying
Like a really bad
smell going inside
I think the worst
part is a whole
bunch of sour ladies
trying to sing.
