I desire to be as dark as the night and the
Worst luck anyone could ever have.

And in many a heart.

To keep me flying high in the name of freedom.

Photo Poems

A clear, swift waterfall
Pounds the innocent water below.
A rainbow streaks across the sky
Showing its magnificent colors.
Birds gliding toward the
misty, dark path.
Erik ~ Grade 5

The warm moist air is suffocating
the delicate flower.
Suddenly a breeze rolls in.
Parakeets swiftly move across
the bright blue sky.
A tiger drops down in a fast bolt
trying to pounce on its prey.
A briskly moving storm rumbles through
the warm moist air.
While a rain shower pours down upon the
helpless flower, bringing it to a slow death.
The rainforest is full of fantastic miracles
just waiting to happen.
Jenna ~ Grade 5

On a beach a crab waits
for a meal of delicious shrimp.
The sun beats down hard,
So the crab slowly moves
into a freshly made sandcastle.
The tide begins to rise
Making the crab move swiftly
back into the water.
Then disappearing
into the blue-green sea.
Laura ~ Grade 4
A vulture
Spying its prey in the distance
The fog blinding him
Yet, he swoops down
Snaps up a squirrel
Bringing the food of life
Back to its nest.

I see the dimming sun
Getting ready to lay down and go to sleep.
The stars begin to get brighter and brighter.
People are walking barefoot
As the tide grows on top of the sand.
Sunset at the beach is beautiful!
McKenzi ~ Grade 5

A palm tree sways side to side
As the foamy waves splash upon the shore.
A light brown coconut falls and lands
in the soft clay-colored sand.
As the water recedes back into the ocean
I see little crabs escaping from out of the foamy sea.
The moon peeks over the ocean
And I flash my camera.
Shaina ~ Grade 5

A red hot
Boiling oasis of fire
An awakened neighborhood
of volcanoes.
Streaming waterfalls of magma.
The hot air
Embracing the mist
The camera fogs up.
Andrew ~ Grade 5

Quiet and solemn
Walking into a whispering
dark forest
Of ghostly figures.
Animals moaning
Driving into a great ball of fog.
Waking up seeing blurry
Looking at gray smoke
Rising from the fields.
Gettysburg, at night
Can be scary.
Kayleigh ~ Grade 4

Twenty acres of bare land.
One big tree with
hundreds of leaves,
Wind pushing brown dirt
off the ground.
Oklahoma can be very hot!

5 Ws Poems

Soft, whispering wind
Blowing the dark orange leaves
In the early part of the yawning morning
Toward the front of my house
It is time for Autumn
Kayleigh ~ Grade 4

The fierce turquoise waterfalls
Pounding the rocks below
In the misty air towards the bottom
In the young of the evening
Nature in all its beauty.
Jenna ~ Grade 5

A quivering young polar bear
Hiding from a furious snow wolf
In the freezing cold ice caps of Antarctica
At the purple and pink spectacular sunset
Nature taking its course.

My pony, CC
Was galloping along
At Laurel Crown Farms
When I was playing with him
Just so we could have fun together.
Laura ~ Grade 4

Wonderful spring!
The smell of flowers in the wind
On a sunny day
In the morning
Spring is in the air!

A young, orange and black tiger
Pouncing on his younger brother
In the middle of a huge beautiful rain forest
As the light from the sun starts to fade away
To have a little bit of fun.
Shaina ~ Grade 5

A young, tall giraffe
Trying to reach high on a tree
In a wide, grassy land called Africa
As the morning sun peeks over
Wanting to be just like her mother.

A brown furry monkey
Trying to reach a big yellow ripe banana
In the moist jungle
In the late summer's day.
He's starving!
McKenzi ~ Grade 5

A large great white shark
Is swimming in a circle again and again
In the ocean
At night
Since he was chasing a midnight snack!
Vincent ~ Grade 4

A rushing waterfall
Dragging people in a canoe
Down the ragging river so they go...splat!
In Puerto Rico in a wet, green rainforest
In late evening when the shiny moon shines
To view it's beauty.
Jennifer ~ Grade 4
