    Our Sizzling Writing Haiku Poetry by Jayden Bleeds into the sky As the sun bleeds slowly More stars shine, clear nights. Haiku by Jayden Unrelenting blue skies Without warning, evil and sweet Turns paddocks to dust Haiku by Montana More stars shine brightly As a memory withers Waving seas drift Haiku by Brooke Unrelenting blue skies Without a warning stars dim Silence through the air

    Haiku by Michael In the darkness air Far alone, the sun fades away Up you come, moon shines! Haiku by Daley Without a warning Paddocks turn into dry heat Trees begin to die Haiku by Samuel Red heat of the day Strange and wonderful, is eerie Ancient gums wither Haiku by Noah Ancient gums perished A memory of themselves Under the mallee

    Guess who?

    Our Sizzling Writing - Crow Moon

    Sam W and Samuel - Crow Moon - Without warning, the promise of warmth passed slowly but surely for the tired resting crows. Inky, black swallows the bright gloomy moon. Danger looms below the old dead tree. Death approaches, crows scramble, the moon slowly, very slowly, turns into bright, beautiful sunshine. Death fades, into dust and peace returns to all the land. Crows rest, among the healed trees, while children run around on the soft green grass. All of a sudden, a whisper of smoke chuckled off in the distance, a much bigger threat, than death itself is coming… .. Michael - Crow Moon - On the inky black clifftops razor sharp beaks were flying through whispers of smoke, slowly disappearing in the glow of the fire. As the crows got weaker and weaker darkness grows and comes to life, as a nice trainer. As quick as a flash, they leave the inky black sky. Beside them flying in space, one crow followed in the darkness, flying and flying. No one realised the crow was gone!! Whatever could now be happening below the clifftop?? Noah and Daley - Crow Moon - In the blink of an eye, the inky, black night shadows were flickering in the woods, as death emerged and started to feast. As crows flew away some were eaten alive. As the little girl called for her tawny brown dog, eating the decomposing, midnight black crows. As candy red blood dripped from the dog’s mouth, death devoured the tawny dog. In the distance a flock of crows flew as fast as they could but they still were being devoured when the mother appeared, she tried to protect her children but was eaten herself by death. Brooke - Crow Moon - In the blink of an eye the mysterious, enticing shadow awoke from the depths. Taking over the beautiful land the darkness destroyed everything in its path. Crows started frantically fleeing the deep dark wood. Many were devoured and many survived….suddenly in the distance a whisper of smoke danced through the air. As the moon rises brighter than ever, the smoke got bigger and bigger to the point that it overthrew the darkness and peace was restored to the land. Montana - Crow Moon - As shadows came to life the moon brightens anxiously as crows appeared. Crows are the sign of death, what was coming next? Crows got weaker and weaker as time ticking by….then they fell to death. From there on, life was silent. Jayden - Crow Moon - The inky black clifftops stops crows with razor sharp teeth who were attacking their enemies. As red as the sun’s fire, it gets hotter and hotter, so that water disappears. The midnight black crow starts to attack the wolves.

    Our Sizzling Writing - Mallee Sky Montana - Red heat of the day bleeds into the sky for ever reaching. We were in drought. As the trees stand grey, ghostlike, the dust storm swirled. Under the mallee sky was dry forever. But beneath the leaden sky and the dry land was a new world. One hot summer day at school we heard a drumming sound. It was rain!!! YYYYYEEEEESSSSS, life was fun, drinking deeply, everything was great again. Sam W - As the sun emerges from nowhere, the beaming light swallows the inky black darkness. Stepping into the harsh dry withering paddocks, the bright blue mallee sky peers down at the dead land and laughs in silence. Sparkling in the sunshine the precious water slowly and painfully drains from the drying dam, as if the water was the dam’s blood. A mysterious evil shadow loomed over the dead ghost town. Drip drop. The magical sound of water pounds the land with life. Ancient gums perish, inky sky more stars, shine clear night. A memory of themselves, turns to dust. Unrelenting blue sky selfishly laughs in silence, without warning ancient gums wither into dust. Sun goes down the inky sky comes up. Michael - Red heat of the day bleeds into the sky forever reaching. We were in drought. The trees won’t bloom again, stand grey ghostlike and red golden strange summer sky. Beneath the leaden sky, drifting away. The sun goes down, drumming the red heat of the day. While the heat shimmers away under the mallee sky. The next day the selfish blue sky, made up its mind and made the paddocks green like the blue wave sea. Without warning, the inly sky turned red. What ever could be happening? Dust twirls turning into a dust storm, quickly covering the crops. Daley - As the sun goes down, the blazing red heat of the day turns into night. As night appears the selfish, blue, summer sky drifts away into the clear night. I glance into the dry paddocks, as the cattle lay under the ancient gums, while the unrelenting sun cracks through the land. Jayden - The sun goes down, the red heat of the day bleeds into the sky under the mallee sky. Beneath the leaden sky, the sun beats down on the dry gums who gasp. Still and thirsty the animals were hot and could not find water, not even a puddle of water to drink. It was only just dust but the next day it started to rain heavier and heavier. A few days later it started to flood, the river filled up and flooded.

    Our Sizzling Writing - Mallee Sky Samuel - Red heat of the day, the inky sky. Summer sky forever, dry forever. A house in the middle of Australia and the floor is orange forever. Dead trees because it never rains. Poor people who may have food but barely no water. They have enough food to feed their cows. Sad faces forever, never happy, no money, never able to pay their bills. Most people live on the outsides of Austr
