HWC- prompt is on the website

The eggs sat on the table, grinning at the rabid squirrels that had put them there as the squirrels nommed on salty lollipops. Outside the window in the warm winter air, a sick astronaut floated around and played go fish with a talking pink dog. Down the street the leaves practised their martial art skills on the dirt that floated in the sky. My neighbour was walking their goldfish across the air and eating some nails while they went. A worm was chasing a bird with an iron-studded club and trying to hit it. Today was a completely normal day.

Changing Australia Day: BTN Reflection.

People are debating to change the date.

Aboriginals don’t like the date because it’s when they got invaded.

The first fleet landed in Sydney cove.

If the date gets changed, what day will it be changed to?

What is a good way to decide the new date?

I understand why people want to change the date of Australia day.

HWC challenge: Prompt can be found on the website.

Yesterday my father dropped his cup,

Yesterday his cup he dropped.

He dropped it over the paddocks.

Over the paddocks, he dropped his cup.

On a summer afternoon, he dropped it,

He dropped it on a summer afternoon.

It broke the sound barrier that day,

The sound barrier that day it broke.

The cup was bigger than my head,

Bigger than my head was the cup.

It startled the animals and it scared the sheep,

Startling the animals and scaring the sheep,

He sent me out to find it today.

I found it but how do I get it back?

HWC CHALLENGE: What if I was in charge?

The world is very funny.

It seems to involve a lot of money.

But what if I was in charge?

Would the people be very large?

Would I make more rivers and forests?

Or would I keep all the money in a closet?

Would I make people have rights and money?

Or would I go and eat all the honey?

Would I make everyone have what they need?

Or would I give to the wealthy, seeds?

It’s a big and questioning question, this.

Would I succeed or would I miss?

I wonder what would happen.

If I was in charge.
