Red

Frisca Mohammady, Up on Top Program at Tenderloin Community School

Red sounds like fire

It sounds very scary

It tastes like strawberry pudding and strawberry jello

 

Red makes me feel cozy and warm 

It's like I have to sleep

Moves likes the waves of the ocean

Looks like a monster

Feels like love

The Sky of a Million Colors

Lesley Anne Chua, Lakeshore Elementary

 

My sky, sky of a million colors, with its many

vibrant colors glimmering in the dark sky.

With its red as red as blood-red apples

It’s orange as soft as a lovely sunset

Yellow bright as the blazing sun

Green as grassy field at dawn

Blue as the delightful icy blue sky

With violet as rich as dew covered lavenders on a spring day

And pink as a flower blooming slowly

Sky of a million colors, my sky.

The Right Words to Say I Love You

Oscar Martinez, ER Taylor

 

Too many words just to say
Three simple words. It takes time
And faith. Mom when I see you
I just can’t wait to say it.
You make me go to heaven,
I dance in the clouds all day long.

You make my day and turn
My frown upside down.
You have showed me everything I know
just Like a teacher.
Every time I see you
Make my heart come out of my chest.
This means that you’re the best.
