I Am A Hurricane
Amy Tristram, Grade 6, Riverside Primary School
Big strong tough winds, lights are flashing like bursting light bulbs.
I rip and destroy the earth, and everyone and everything in my path.
I am an irresistible force, extracting houses from their foundations and carrying them in me. I surge over the ocean and play with big black boats like they are my toys.
The wind heaves me to a distant tropical island and I instantly shatter trees to splinters and shards.
I take sand in me, dumping it in unknown far-away places
The roaring wind delivers my message.
I hear screaming voices terrified of me.
