Rain

Like a silver mist on a winter morning

Like a cold shower on a hot summer day

Like a soft pleasant music on a tired evening

Like the sound of cheers from a winning team

Like a delightful joy of a little kid on Christmas morn

Like the showers of blessings from heavens above

Like the droplets spreading peace around the world



The Forest Very tall trees hovering over me

The creaking of branches as the wind pushes against them

The light rain drops as they fall on me

The incense of the cedar trees

The rough rugged bark of the trees



Tide pools

Small, rocky

Amazing, interesting, splashing

Water stagnant, illusion, fancy

Deceive, mock, delude

Unreal, misleading

Mirage





Campfire

Hot, blazing

Warming, flaring, igniting

Warmth on a chilly evening

Mystifying







WESTMINISTER WOODS

Best time for me

Enormous place

Super

Terrific



Tons of fun

Really awesome

Irresistible

These are some poems I wrote after my class went to Westminster Woods, a nature school. I hope you enjoy!





Rain

Beautiful, powerful, quick

Creek

Natural, forceful

Churning, flowing, splashing

Sunlight glistening off of waves

Fresh moving water

Like a shooting star in a clear sky

Like a bird singing in the spring

Like a redwood waving wildly in the breeze

Like a rainbow after a horrible storm







Sea anemone

Hundreds of little arms waving to greet me

The silent tranquil sound of the stirring tidepools







Banana slug

Small, slow

Climbing, wriggling, sliding

After going to Westminster Woods for a week, our class had a great time. Here are some of the poems I wrote about our once in a lifetime experience.



Tide Pools



People scurrying around, trying to catch a glimpse of every discovery

The waves crashing against rocks, creating mountains of water

Elated when I discover a rock crab between the algae covered boulders Salt that has accumulated in the Pacific for many years

The shell of a hermit crab that lays in my palm





Waterfall

Like a national monument, kept for its beauty and grace

Like Mother Nature’s garden for absolute peace

Like a miracle that appeared in the making of this world

Like all other nature parted to make a picture frame for this brisk wonder

Like a river that decided to do a favor for the world and become as beautiful as can be

Like a quick dip of refreshment for nature Like a water supply for animals that is marvelous as well





Redwood

Towering, gigantic, strong

Redwood



Cabin

Cozy, warm, pleasant

Cabin

My class and I went to Westminster Woods for a week. When we got back to school I wrote poetry about my trip. Here are some of my favorite poems:







Hike

The strong scent of bay leaves

The chilling bark of the famous madrone

The fallen leaves of a Douglas fir tree

The birds softly chirping, filling the air with beauty

Enchanted by the forest’s elegance







Puddles

Muddy, dirty

Splashing, drenching, soaking

Pleasing kids who wish to get wet

Small pond





Waterfall

Beautiful, loud

Trickling, flowing, escaping

Lake, river, food, dinner

Repulsing, disgusting, sickening

Burnt, gross

Vegetable Patty





Rain

Constant, misty

Annoying, irritating, un-ending

Refusing to disappear

Precipitation







Redwood

Colossal, intriguing, brightly colored, mighty, strong, evergreen, famous

Redwood

Sunset

Like a beautiful rainbow of colors

Like a painting with majestic shades

Like a sky filled with fluorescence

Like a gift from Mother Nature

Like a sign that a great night is approaching

Like a mystery of colors

Like part of a world of perfection





River

Flowing, rippling, exhilirating

River





Mountains

Snow-covered, dominating, gorgeous

Mountains







Clouds

Like a great mess in the beautiful sky

Like a pile of the softest cotton

Like a hazy mist blocking the radiant sun

Like a fluffy pillow inviting me to rest

Like a stretch of white on a background of blue

Like a sweet cotton candy spread through the air

Like a light puff fluffing around

Like a ball of smoke coming from the sky

Like some thing crying tears of rain

Like majestic wings covering the bare sky







Wind

Cold, forceful

Blowing, roaring, pounding

Pushing me back and forth

Gust



Ocean

A wave, powerful and mighty

Seagulls flying overhead

The freezing cold water at my feet

The saltiness of the air before me

Water spraying on my face





Sun and Moon

Sun

Brilliant, luminous

Dazzling, shining, blinding

Radiant, yellow, white, round

Illuminating, brightening, smiling

Glowing, crescent

Moon

Tide Pools



Living creatures in the tide pools

The crashing waves on the high rocks

The rough rocks under my feet

The salty water

The squishy sea anemone under my fingers



A Redwood Tree



Like a tower that’s reaching for the sky

Like a giant ready to stomp on me

Like a suspended net waiting to tangle me

Like a radio tower sending out signals

Like a telephone pole towering over me

Like a red skyscraper waving in the wind

Like a masterpiece wanting to be looked at

Like a package of beauty for me to admire



Woods

Dark, creepy

Logging, living, flowing

Trees everywhere

Forest



Cabin, at Night



Everyone sleeping, tossing, and turning

The rhythmical hooting of owls

A warm, happy feeling blossoming in my heart

The crisp air of the blackened sky

The soft sponginess of my sleeping bag
