Redwoods

Redwoods


Tall, old, thick


Redwoods







Ocean

Ocean


Wild, giant


Crashing, flowing, swaying



Sometimes calm, others rough

Frothing







Sea Star


Like stars in the sea

   
Like five pronged forks    


Like rock-sucking stars


Like stars of different colors


Like wheels without a tire


Like flowers with pointed petals


Like five pointed ninja stars







Stream


A water bug in the water


The sound of water trickling down


The breeze against my back


The dirty water below me


The flowing water






The Night


The night


Cold, dark, mysterious, scary, quiet


The night






Cargo Net

Cargo net


Rough, unstable


Wobbling, exciting, waving

It bounces as I do


Fun








Hermit Crab

Hermit crab


Small, shy


Tickling, crawling, hiding


Moving from home to home

    
      Independent     





The Forest


The forest


The tall trees all around me


A woodpecker near in the trees


The breeze on my neck


A sweat, musty smell


The long, thin sticks on the ground
