Helena Sandlant, Grade 5, Annandale Public School
A dark cave is formed.
If you look down you will see that magic truly lives.
Magic flows through my veins.
Mermaids emerge gracefully from the magical place underneath.
Gliding in the water turning into a light as bright as the sun.
Magical memories dance in my mind.
My heart is filled with loneliness.
Thoughts flow through me like a gushing waterfall.
The mermaids’ tails glimmer like diamonds.
Suddenly the cave fades into thin air.
I swim to the surface on a turtle into the sunlight.
I feel the hot sun on my body again.
I feel the faint heartbeat of my child within.
The greatest gift in the world I have found, Love.
