under 16s

shadows of dusk
the kangaroo mob
hops over the grasslands

 Ewan Magee, 12


winter sunshine
my green pen
writes haiku

earth and sky
into thirds

slight drizzle
mysterious mountains
shrouded in mist

Evie Zhang, 11


midwinter mischief
a bird feeder
for the squirrel

on the lake I see
reflected in symmetry
two butterfly wings
