Ago by Finn Mulvogue (3rd)

Fire by Chelsea Ambrose (Highly Commended)

                                The ground sizzled, a fire leaped. Baby tree cried as Mother tree burned.
                                              Mother tree was brown but now she is black.
                                                               Baby tree was now alone.  
               The red smoking monster whipped around! Hope was only a sliver, but a sliver is enough …

                                Justice came, they came, they came with red jackets, they came in trucks.
                                                      Red was replaced with black and white.
                Stumbling voice’s, dust in the air, tears fulled eyes, this is where hugs are better then gold.
                                                              Time goes by, they come and go.
                The world began to start again. Green was growing rain was falling smiling over my head.
                                                        And the circle of life began again!
