Banana Slug

 A long yellow banana slug

 The sound of other students taking their turn to kiss the banana slug

 The slimy and sticky skin

 The gooey texture that numbs my lips

 The sweet fragrance of redwood bark

Tide Pool

 The rocky coastline unfolding before my eyes

 The white topped waves crashing into the craggy boulders lining the coast

  The rough,  jagged rocks on which I grip to prevent to me from falling

  The starfish’s bumpy back as I stroke it

  The salty water and diseased fish drying on rocks warmed by the sunlight

Cargo Net

Like a giant spider web


Like a bridge stretching over a gushing river


Like an awning over a slender creek 


Like dropping a prized possession into an abyss never to be found again


Like a ladder reaching over a swelling stream


Like a trap waiting to suck my feet into the gaps of the net


Like a net reaching across the world
