Tiny Seed by Sarah Bown (First Prize)

The Wolves are Howling by Hannah Johnston (Second Prize)

II stand in front of the moonlight. 
I hear the wolves howl.
I wonder where they are.
I wonder where they are now.

When I look up in the sky,
I see the twinkling stars.
So I think of you.
But when I do that I begin to cry.
So I just walk away,
Into the darkness and close my eyes,
And, and, and….
I begin to get scared,
So I run through the scary woods.
Then I tripped on a branch,
And I hurt my knee.

I think I’m having a heart attack.
That’s when I think of you.
I stand in front of the moonlight.
I hear the wolves howl.
I wonder where they are.
I wonder where they are now.

The end.

“You may get scared sometimes if you have a heart condition.
That is when you look up to God Your Lord.”
