My class went to Camp Monte Toyon on March 3-6, 2020. It was very exciting to explore. We hiked, ran, and we went to the ocean. It was an amazing experiece and I would love to do it again. When my class got back we wrote poetry about the nature and how amazing our experiences were.






Rainbow

Bright, colorful

Looping, brightening, shining

Beautiful, light, dark, stormy

Saddening, darkening, fading

Plain, boring

The naturalist talking

The sand between my toes
The logs in front of me

The salty ocean air

Squiggling, scooting, crawling

Decomposers on the ground

Lighting up the sky

Starry night

A soft breeze

A Soft Breeze 

Like a blanket surrounding me 

Like a relief of a thousand fans

Like a sea of cool ice around me

Like a pool of calmness

Like a bird whooshing around me

Like a sea of wind brushing against me

Like a stream of air pulsing around me




Redwoods

Tall, straight

Staying, photosynthesizing, waiting

Red, rough, soft, brown

Laying, blowing, drifting

Short, crooked

Dirt

Standing, warming, comforting 

Like another home

Water fountain

Watery, wet, washing, fillable, liquidy, cold, soft

The forest

the roughness of the ground as I walk

 the darkness of the night

the scent of bark as I walk past the trees

freezing air surrounding

 the owl whispering to me
