My class and I went to Monte Toyon. We hiked,  had a campfire, went to
tidepools, stayed in cabins, went to a creek, and had astronomy night.
When we came back we wrote this poetry. Hope you like it.







Astronomy Night

No star but a moon

Laughing all around 

The cool wind

A hint of dinner 

 The grass on my back






Tide Pools

So many sea creatures

The waves hit the mussels at the shore

Mist hitting my face

The crisp salty air 

Sea anemones to see them react






A Redwood

 Redwood

Enormous, incredible, resilient

Redwood






Hike

Hike,

Long, beautiful

 Interesting, tiring, fulfilling

Very worth it

Fun






Banana Slug

Banana Slug

Slimy, slow, yellow

Banana Slug







Albino redwood

Albino redwood

Gray, small, rare 

Albino redwood







Campfire

Campfire

Hot, colorful

Warming, crackling, blazing

Sparks fly through the air

  Burning






Along the creek

 Redwood sorrel all around me

The creek flowing past softly

Comfort of the soothing forest

The fresh air that is dusty, too

The tender bark as I sit here








Ocean or Classroom

Ocean

Peaceful, vast

Calming, amazing, quieting 

Waves, salt, study, teacher

Learning, reading, talking

Loud, busy

Classroom
