Larger than you think
Running up straight out of the ground
Growing from the earth
Stone is strong and
Over the ground, used for building.
Never broken away.
Ever sitting where it started.
Are stronger than you think, and mysterious in all ways.
Never can one be sure what they are made for, and why.
Dead only when the rest dies, or when separated, otherwise immortal.
Straight up mysteries that can never be solved.
Rising from the ground
In the form of stone giants.
Stoned and left right there
Ever until the end of everything.
It was beautiful. But what colour should it be? Green, like the trees, grass, the plants? Or perhaps red, of the sky in dawn, the scarlet of freshly spilt blood. Or the blue of the sky and the depths of the ocean. Perhaps orange, bright and cheerful, the sun at the start and the end. Or maybe yellow, of flowers and the midday sun. Purple, maybe, dark yet calming to us in many situations. Or black, white, brown, or many many more, that we cannot even record.
We all see differently. What is it we can trust?
Can we trust?
Under the STAIRS to heaven, there is a RIVER with PINK salmon swimming around it. They taste very delicious when COOKED with spiced onions. However, I always get NERVOUS when dad offers to cook them, because they often end up burnt and not at all desirable to even the best salmon lovers.
However, this river is also a big tourist attraction. People from all over the world come to visit it, and touring companies make billions each month. Chefs also come to compete and see who can cook the best salmon. It’s a very nice place to visit, any time.
“Why would I do that?” Said my little sister. Her infuriating grin widened as she looked at the broken vase that lay on the floor. “I’m just a sweet little girl. I would never do anything like this!”
“Oh really?” I responded. She looked at the broken pieces. “Yep. This could only be done by you.”
I grabbed a broom, and quickly started to gather the broken pieces of the vase into a neat pile, which I swept under the fridge. I stared at my sister, wondering if she would wreck anything else.
Then the door opened. Dad was home.
My neighbour Ham Regularly eats Frog soup, with a dash of Lime. He says this improves the flavour, but I’m not that sure. Last week, when the Clock struck 2:30, he invited my family over to his house for dinner. We thought it was a bit early, but we came anyway, in case we offended him.
For dinner Ham served us roast beef, toasted over an open Flame, and for dessert we had apple pie, cooled by being sat on a block of Ice. Although he is weird. My neighbour Ham is generally a nice person. He’s quite weirdly fabulous.
So, as I looked over the edge, I saw a long, long drop down. My stomach lurched slightly, and I dug my hands into the railing, my gloves crunching against the small ice particles.
“It isn’t that bad, if you don’t look over the edge.” Said my dad, following my gaze. I thought it was easy for him to say. He wasn’t afraid of heights.
I sat down on a bench, the wet snow crackling as it slid away from me. I hadn’t exactly been excited when dad had announced we’d be going up to Mt. Bulla to go skiing.
One day I was walking my dog and I saw a huge bridge that somebody had sprinkled pink daffodils on. My dog spotted a quite big daffodil floating on the water, and decided to jump right off the bridge to go get it, dragging me with him.
I hit the water and I felt like I landed on a bouncy castle. I looked down and realised that I had, and when I realised it I sprung back in the air. My dog decided to jump on my back and slobber in my ear.
Soon I realised I was in trouble.
The people get 50L a day.
When the tap water supply ends its going to be called day zero.
People are going to extreme lengths to save water.
How long can they delay day zero?
What will happen to them on day zero?
This Btn was about the drought in Cape Town, how it affects the people there and what they’re doing to save water.
It can take years to rebuild
The most important needs are food, shelter, clean water and medical attention
It affected more people than when the tsunami hit Asia
many people are injured?
How many people are trapped or stranded?
How This is about how countries have to rebuild and what troubles they go through after a natural disaster.
One day a child was walking in the park when they saw two spiky green things. They asked their friend what it was, but their friend didn’t know, so they picked them off the tree and took them home. When they got home the spikes started to grow until they were as long as a pencil. Then the spiky green things came alive and ate the two kids. Then it danced around and ate all the food, until it decided to take over the world and turn everything into a spiky green thing like it.
It was a weird day.
