I am from..

by Naveer Asnani (10 years old)

 

I am from..

An oval floating sofa

driven by a boat fast across rough rough waves.

Seawater stung the eyes

of 7 people hanging for their lives.

 

I am from..

A loud boat going up and down

Rough waves hitting our faces

And a floating sofa bumping through strong winds and waves

About to fly!

 

I am from..

Everyone saying 'Ahhhhh'

Sisters saying "I thought I wouldn't get wet"

Friends explaining "I need one more handle"

And as all screaming "I hope we survive"

 

It is better to sleep on things beforehand than lie awake about them afterwards. -Baltasar Gracian, philosopher and writer (8 Jan 1601-1658)
