Favourite Pets by Marli Farrer (1st)

Red by Sarah Damasiewicz (2nd )

Red is the sight of poppies when we commemorate ANZAC day,
Red is the sight of pretty carnations when we celebrate Mother’s Day.

Red is the sound of fire engines blaring loudly as they rush to the rescue,
Red is the sound of crisp autumn leaves crunching under my feet.

Red is the toxic smell of bright-coloured paint on a fence,
Red is the smell of fragrant roses blossoming in my beautiful garden.

Red is the touch of a burning hot fire blazing uncontrollably,
Red is the touch of my cold numb nose on a freezing winter’s day.

Red is the taste of salty blood when you bite your lip,
Red is the taste of juicy, sweet, ripe cherries in my mouth.

Red is the colour of anger,
Red is the colour of love.
