fiction challenge: Dreaming
mjones's picture


I had this dream every night. I would wake up a little before the next part every day. The story would keep going until I woke up. But today I didn’t for some reason. It always starts with me rushing out the door and getting into my car. We would drive past our town and I would ask my mom where we were going. She always said it was a surprise, but I never knew what it was because I would always wake up. We drove past this weird looking store and it had the date on it. It said June 14, 3021. I have always ignored that, but now that I think about it, why does it say 3021? There is no way that we are in that year, it's 2021. I went to sleep in the car. Then I woke up to a sign that said Welcome to Hawaii. I thought it was fake, but as I looked out the window I saw palm trees and oceans. I asked my mom why and how are we in Hawaii? She said “because we can drive there.” “There is no way we can drive to Hawaii, you have to fly a plane” I said to her.

Peacock Tree

Everyday after school

I walked past the park 

It was very busy

I was so overwhelmed 

By all the people

By the shouting and yelling 

The babies crying 

But I saw a tree 

It was very little 

I wondered why it was there

Thinking who would plant this

It had little blue and green petals

Like a flower

But I was still very confused on why it was there

I dug it up from the ground 

And brought it to my house

I planted it in my backyard 

Gave it new soil and watered it everyday

I watched it grow

From my bedroom window

It was becoming older 

With all the blue and green feathered petals

I started to think 

What is this tree

I never learned about it in school 

But I guess I could see

I went down to water it

poem challenge: Fame

Fame poem

I stood there looking

Looking at the paparazzi 

Realizing this is my life

I make the money I make

But I don't want to do this anymore

I've traveled around the world

Meeting amazing people

But this isn't what I want

I can't live like this anymore

I want to live a normal life

Live in a normal house 

I just want to live

My family told me I shouldn't do this

I never listened to them 

I should have

But I was too stuck up 

I need to go now 

Get out of this life

I'll still have my money 

But I don't want the fame

So I'm saying goodbye

To all these people 

Who made my life kinda better

poem challenge: Love

Love Poem

There was this girl

Named Scarlett Mcardle  

Blonde hair brown eyes 

Very tall but warm hearted

I would see her on her front porch 

So I said hi

I then went by her house  

And gave her roses on her front porch 

She never noticed me

Until one day 

She walked out and saw me 

It was a cold morning 

And the flowers were dying

I had to quickly get some 

And say my goodbying 

To the man that gave me the flowers each day 

To thank him for making my heart warm in each way 

I went by her house and she saw me again 

I've never gotten so happy 

She smiled at me in all exciting ways 

I gave her the roses and said 

This is the last time you'll get these roses

For they are dying all around town
