What I had to do to be heard

What I had to do to be heard

I looked over the edge of the cliff.

The ground below yelled up, “Are you gonna jump?!”

I shook my head no. The ground below said, “What? I can’t hear you!”

I shook it again. The ground below said, “I still can’t hear you!”

I said, “No!”

The ground below said, “What?!”

I climbed down the edge of the cliff. It took me four and a half hours.

When I reached the ground below, I said, “I said, no.”

The ground said, “Oh. Okay.”

Regarding the bird

Regarding the bird

The bird landed on my head. I said hi to the bird, who ignored me. I got irritated and tried to swat the bird off, but it managed to hold onto my head. The bird flapped its wings. I was lifted off the ground. The bird flew high in the sky. I looked down, amazed at the view of the countryside below.

But then the bird released my head and I began to fall. The ground got closer and closer. I landed in a haystack. It hurt. I had to lay there for a while before I could think of getting up.

I got up slowly. The bird landed and latched onto my head again. I managed to run backwards. I knew birds can’t fly if they are moving backwards. The bird asked me to stop. I ended up running into a tree. The bird fell off my head. We both lay on the ground in a daze.

I asked the bird if it was okay. The bird said its neck hurt. I apologized. The bird said it was sorry for dropping me from the sky.

I was walking through the woods when I came upon a pond. The pond was a whirlpool. I had some free time, so I jumped in. I was spun around and sucked down. I came out and landed in a seat in a movie theater that was showing the movie, Jaws. I was drenched and began to shiver. At the same time, I love the movie, Jaws.

I was shaking from the air conditioning so much that my seat busted. The usher shone a flashlight on me. I covered my eyes because the light was bright. The usher helped me up. He apologized for the broken seat. I didn’t tell him I was the cause. He found me another seat. I shivered in that seat too, but I guess it was better constructed because it held up until the end of the movie.

When the film was over, I got up and went outside. I was still wet and the sun warmed me.

Things change

Things change

The mountain got tired of being a mountain. It collapsed and become flat land. It felt relaxed and at peace.

A year later, a tree grew on the land. The once mountain didn’t like that something was now taller than itself. It rumbled, but the tree stayed upright. It rumbled again. The tree stayed standing.

Eventually the flat land forgot it used to be a mountain. Over the years many trees grow on the land.

Much later, the trees were leveled and removed and a shopping mall was built on the land. The land loved the feeling of feet patter from the mall shoppers.

Love and hate

Love and hate

The rock loved the duck. The duck hated the rock.

The rock was sad and cried for months until it dissolved and became a pond.

The duck discovered the pond and enjoyed floating on its surface. The duck didn’t know the pond used to be the rock. The pond/rock silently loved the duck.
