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.

Bright Star

Ariana Carrillo, Hillcrest Elementary

 

I am as bright as a star that shines in the sky that explodes on my heart that lives

In my life everywhere I go I follow the star that lives in my heart

I pretend I never see it but I do see it.

I am feeling the fresh breeze of the air but I do not feel it

I feel the hot sun

I am going to melt

My heart beats and beats everywhere I go.

The star I follow everywhere disappears

The hot sun goes away
