SLURP! TEAR! BURP! By Angelina & Carmen, both age 8

Flowers bloom
in the sunlight
redwood needles.

Wind sends petals 
fluttering and flickering
all around the 
welcoming sky.
Snakes slide on the 
dusty ground. 

Bobcats scratch 
tree trunks 
and roar
while birds soar 
through the air.

When salmon jump 
out of the rushing 
bears catch them between
their jaws. 

Heads and tails
flipping and flopping,
teeth peeling scales from 
muscle and meat.

Blood drips on
the rocks
and water splashes 
on the grass.

Slurp! Slurp! Slurp! 
Rip! Tear! Burp!
