Archery

‘Chirp,chirp’ went the birds as me , my friend Adyen and our families walked down the path to a bend in the river my friend shot his bow and arrow.

‘Hey Tyson’I said (Tyson is Aydens  father) ‘Yes’ answered Tyson ‘Can we shoot the bow and arrow ‘ I said ‘Okay’ answered  Tyson ‘I am going to show Boryan how to shoot the bow and arrow’said Ayden braking into the conversation ‘Okay’I said thinking’ Oh I forgot that I did not know how to shoot a bow and arrow.’ I felt butterflies in my stomach as Ayden handed me the bow and arrow when he was done showing me how to shoot it.

I felt a rush of excitement  take over the butterfly feeling as I grabbed an arrow from the quiver and I pulled back the string , my hands were shaking. I felt my fingers part from the string. The arrow went all twisty and it struck the dirt target. I shot three more, they did the same. I jumped up and down and then in circles. When I stopped, I felt excited and dizzy at the same time.

I will never forget this moment because it inspired me to start making bow and arrows!

The Porcupine

I the porcupine warn you,
for your information a prickly
sensation
we live in the ground there we
are found we are almost round
but you can here no sound
don’t try to bounce us at all
or else we will stick you in
the eye ball we don’t need to
be quick we will give you a stick
give us a wave not a hug
Yours truly,
The Porcupine

The Snake

The slithery body of the snake

gliding smoothly though the vast world

finding food in the dead of night

a mole a mouse or a rabbit

who knows

no one knows

silent body

slithering tail

yellow eyes…

hypnotised
