Snorkelling

Snorkelling

Calm, soft water pushes its way through the rocky reef,
I scramble my way through the treacherous seaweed.
Seeing two orange, pointy things sticking out from under the rock, I swam to see what they were, I was curious!

Taking a breath I dived under. The clear salt water surrounded me as I kicked my way down to the bottom to take a peek. As I got to the bottom, I looked underneath the hole in the rock… red antennae swayed with the surge of the tide.

I saw something…
Waiting…
Listening…
I watched as something big approached from underneath the rock. I could just picture it in the darkness of the reef… it really was a Crayfish!!

“Oooh baby baby, I love you, you’re my sweet little girl.”
The charming sound of singing, pulling me closer.
Walking…
Waiting…
Listening…

You are my hummingbird.” I think dreamly.
The beautiful sounds of singing, rush through my ears as I walk around the bend.
“Aunty Jess.” I say calmly.
Cuddling up together, we sing and sing and sing.

School

“I feel sick!” I moaned.
Waiting for a reply I sat down impatiently.
Sore throat…
Tired…
“I have to work today” said Mum.
“No.” I thought horribly.


Slowly I walked to the lounge and slipped underneath the warm blanket. I watched the world go by and thought about the horrible day ahead of me.


“You can go to the sick bay if you are feeling really sick honey” Mum said.

“Ok Mum.” I croaked sadly.
