My Past Memories

Sneja Limbu, Redding Elementary 

When I see the sun

I feel like I am in the past

with all my wonderful memories

The memories

of being in the sunlight,

and playing soccer

Saying hooray when I win

and having good sportsmanship

when my team feels like they have lost 

The memory

of losing a soccer game

but still having fun

with joy and lots of smiles

The memory

of splashing puddles

while playing soccer

I Used To Be…

Giovanna Andrade, Junipero Serra Elementary

 

I used to be the ground 

that everyone steps on

but now I am heaven

where everyone is welcome

 

I used to be a cloud

for the people to guess what shape I am

but now I am a cloud with rain

that people stare at and wonder about their life

 

I used to be a dead rose

with all my petals that have fallen off

but now I am a healthy garden

of beautiful roses

 

I used to be a broken weak branch

Dreams

Marco Chen, Garfield Elementary

 

It's Blue

Like the starry night, like the 

blue sky

 

It's bright like the glowing moon,

like the very bright sun, it's on fire

 

It's cold, but its romantic

On top of a tall mountain,

the light of the town is as bright

as the Sun

 

It's beautiful,

It looks like there

were ten suns

in the sky,

the best day ever,

I see a werewolf,

it's coming to eat the suns

I'm Awake

JUPITER! 

Jessica Ojeda, ER Taylor

 

I went to Jupiter as fast as light. 

On my long journey I looked outside, 

it was a beautiful night. 

I saw millions of lights. 

I landed on Jupiter; as I walked around 

I felt different types of air. 

I thought, “what a beautiful place” 

I wish to stay

on this peaceful and clean place. 

I felt a nice warm air blowing at me. 

I wish people can live here

I called my family to come with me.

The Moment

Samantha Rodriguez, Hillcrest Elementary

 

Knowing that we would arrive in the morning.

It was dark

with flashing lights

and the smell of a new car,

a grey new car.

I was against the seat

on my grey koala pillow pet,

asleep,

asleep, dreaming...

I woke up

one eye then another.

As I woke up

I didn’t know where I was.

It was morning,

it smelled different.

It smelled like palm trees

and the sky was pink, cotton candy pink.
