Crystal flower

The crystal flower is a transparent ghost,

its petals are spikes that glisten in the sunlight.

It stands tall like a soldier, even though it was short.

With roots gripping tightly to the even-layered soil,

it has nectar all the bees and butterflies want

yet it seems impossible to find in the cluster of leaves.

Star Flower

The petals are like knives as sharp as razors

but as delicate as grass swaying in the vast meadow.

The roots are like laces digging down into the ground like worms.

The stem is like a long icicle

cold and intact but hard to snap.

The bud is like ice revealing a snowy, golden, glowing pollen that

flies away in seconds.

The fruit is like jelly but is poisonous and looks like a frozen bubble of snow.

The Rain Bush

The rain bush’s petals were tiny ballerinas dancing in the wind.

The stem stood as tall as a standing tree

the wishes that were passed

never heard…

The wind glistened on the tiny egg-shaped plant

full of diamonds

never to be burst…

The tiny roots lead up to the twisted petals

that slowly slouched down in exhaustion.

Her eyes twinkled like stars

and her voice was a soft sea of darkness.

and his eyes shone like the golden sun.

His hair was a maze

of drifting leaves

and his voice was like

Its eyes shone like crystal caves

His eyes cried white tears

and his sadness washed

over me in a wave of despair.

I met a boy called Lava.

His hair was spiked and deep read

I met a girl called Forest.

She had wings that were as

delicate as thin leaves

and her eyes were like damp moss on a twig-strewn floor.

I met a princess called Ocean

I met a princess called Ocean.

Her hair was as colourful as coral

Her voice washed over me like a wave.


I met a boy called Frost.

His hair was as fragile as ice

His eyes were like a hint of snowflake.

Her hair was a weeping willow

Her voice was like a beautiful bird song.

I met a girl called Galaxy

I met a girl called Galaxy.

Her endless calls were as relentless as space

and she wore a glowing, pink halo.

Shining like a shoorting star,

she was disguised as an infinite planet.


I met a man called Fossil.

His soft whispers were as ancient as bones,

lost forever

and his age sky-scrapered any others.

With eyes like clouds, he slept silently.


I met a girl called Ocean.

Her voice was as smooth as the waves

and her eyes were hypnotising like her scaly tail.

She wore clothes of scales, reflecting the bright sun.
