Clouds

THE CLOUD PAINTING I MADE
THINKING CLOUD

ONCE THERE WAS A CLOUD THAT WATCHED THE SHAPES THE GROUND MADE. REALLY INTERESTING SHAPES, THOUGHT CLOUD. LOOKS LIKE TREE. NICE STRAIGHT LINES FORM TRUNK. 96 MARKS THAT MUST BE LEAVES. LEAVES ARE POINTING TOWARDS ME. FINDING THAT RUDE. PLEASE BE POLITE, STOP STARING. 

THE CLOUD

TAKE LIFT OFF
MINT CONDITION
FEET AND HEAD LIKE MIST
SHAPE REALLY RANDOM
PENT UP WATER
GOING TO EXPLODE
GET WET
GET SOPPING
ZIPPING ACROSS THE SKY
THE TROUBLE INSIDE ME
THE TROUBLE STEERS ME
EMPTIES OUT ON WORLD
THE LEAST LEARY BODY
TELLS THE STORY
TITLED THE CLOUD
LIFE IS UNIQUE FOR A CLOUD
PEEKING OUT AT WORLD

Letter To Northwest Company

In the form of a letter, argue why or why not being a voyageur is the right kind of job for you. 

DEAR SIR OR MADAM,
IT IS SO NICE TO HEAR FROM YOU. IT IS A HARD DECISION ON WHETHER OR NOT TO BECOME A VOYAGEUR. I FEEL I AM NOT REALLY VOYAGEUR MATERIAL. IT IS MAYBE TOO TIRING FOR ME. I AM ALREADY SO TIRED EVERYDAY. IT HAS LONG DAYS. IT HAS BAD FOOD. IT HAS NO LOVING FAMILY. THAT REALLY IS HARD FOR ME. THE ADDED PRESSURE OF NOT BEING ABLE TO SPEAK BECOMES HARD WHEN I AM AWAY FROM HOME. I ALWAYS LOVE CAMPING. IT IS NICE TO BE IN THE FOREST. I ONLY DON'T LOVE FLIES THAT BITE. THEY ARE INCREDIBLY TERRIBLE. TO NOT GET EATEN IS AMAZING. GOING TO NORTHERN ONTARIO THERE ARE SO MANY FLIES, NASTY FLIES THAT EAT ME. HATE TO SAY NO TO ADVENTURE, YET NO IT IS. 
SINCERELY, FOX

Gold Rush Lesson

What are the lessons learned from the Klondike gold rush and why wouldn't the gold rush happen today?

THE GOLD RUSH FINISHED BEFORE ANYONE GOT THERE. THE NEWS TOOK TOO LONG TO REACH PEOPLE. TODAY NEWS TRAVELS MUCH FASTER. SO MEN HAD NO AVAILABLE CLAIMS TO MINE. THEY MINED ANYWAY AND FOUND NO GOLD. SO HARD TO GET TO KLONDIKE. TODAY THERE ARE ROADS TO DAWSON SO IT IS MUCH EASIER TO GET THERE. TIMES HAVE CHANGED. PEOPLE NOT NEARLY SO DESPERATE AS DURING DEPRESSION. MINING CAN BE HARD. TO TRAVEL THROUGH YUKON ON FOOT IS REALLY HARD. IT TOOK LIVES, IT WAS SO DANGEROUS BACK THEN. TIMES HAVE CHANGED, BACK THEN THERE WERE NO STORIES LIKE "CALL OF THE WILD" TO SHARE WHAT IT REALLY WAS LIKE ON THE YUKON TRAIL. IT IS SO HARD TO IMAGINE THE DANGERS. I THINK THE INTERNET WOULD HAVE STOPPED THE GOLD RUSH. IT SHARES THE INFORMATION SO I REALLY THINK SO MANY PEOPLE WOULDN'T GO IF THEY KNEW WHAT WAS REALLY HAPPENING. MORAL OF THE STORY IS - GOING TO YUKON GOLD RUSH IS JUST FOR THE MINERS, YOU REALLY NEED EXPERIENCE. 

I TRIED PANNING FOR GOLD, GOLD EVADED ME:

Constellations

I AM HOMESCHOOLING WITH RUBY. WE ARE MAKING UP STAR PATTERNS FOR EACH OTHER. AFTER, WE TRADE STAR PATTERNS AND DESIGN A CONSTELLATION. DESIGNING LIKE CONNECTING DOTS. THEN WE EACH WROTE A MYTH FOR OUR NEW CONSTELLATION. MIGHTY LOVING HOMESCHOOL. THIS TIME THERE ARE TWO STUDENTS. 



THE X MARKS THE SPOT BY FOX

THE TALKER TO THE GODS NAMED XAVIER TOLD HERA "I AM BEST TREASURE HUNTER IN WORLD". 

REALLY NASTY HERA HATES BRAGGING. "EACH TIME SOMEONE FINDS A TREASURE MAKE X MARK THE SPOT!" SO HERA PUT XAVIER INTO SKY AS BIG X. 

SHE TALKS TO NO ONE SO SHE CAN'T BE BRAGGED TO ANYMORE. 
Drooling Zombie King By Ruby

There was a zombie king that made the gods mad by eating their beloved demigods. He got banished into the sky to no longer eat a thing. 

The zombie king's servants vowed revenge on Hera for doing such a thing. So they hid underground making a plan. There they still lie. 
The New Lord By Ruby

All the gods got together except one. Hephaestus was missing from the group. The gods all drank from the river Styx and spit the water into a bowl. The Styx water cooled and made a baby. They called him The New Lord. 

The New Lord was a master at everything. He could zap lightning, be handsome, you name it! One day he tried to forge something but could not! 

Seeing the fault, Hera guided him to the sky, turning him into a perfect star.

Thoughts In A Moraine Thoughtful Spot

THOUGHTFUL SPOT
LONG AGO IN THE UNDERDEVELOPED PLANET MORAINE WAS A GLACIER FILLED PLACE. I AM WONDERING WHAT IT WAS LIKE. I GUESS ARCTIC TUNDRA BIOME WAS A LOT BIGGER BACK THEN. I AM HAPPY THAT TODAY IT IS DECIDUOUS FOREST. GOING TO FOREST CALMS TIRED UNCONTROLLABLE BODY. APPRECIATE NATURE SO MUCH. ALRIGHT I'M A POET HAPPY TO WRITE POEM. 

WINTER AFTERTHOUGHT

FAST SPRING STARTS!
ALL SNOW PONDING
GREEN PEEKS THROUGH

GREEN THEN ORANGE WARNS
WAM! EEK!
SORRY! SORRY!
WE ARE PEBBLE ICE CUBES
YOU ARE OK!
SURE THE WINTER IS COLD
IT IS COLD
THE SNOW IS BEAUTIFUL
MAKING TIME STAND STILL
PEBBLE PEBBLE WATCH YOUR LEAVES
LITTLE BUDS PEEK AT YOU
A WATER DROPS AND YOU KNOW, 
FAST SPRING STARTS!
