Landscapes
A tall, slim, prickly cactus stands bare and lonely in the middle of nowhere
Longing for company, for someone, for something.
As night and day pass, stars are scattered, and raging storms flash through the sky.
Screams of horrified people pierce the air and disappear into the dark, dusty night.
Short, green grass surrounds the lonely cactus.
No company for miles, so the cactus stays put, knowing that someday, someone will come.

    Hi my name’s Lauren and I am also from St Bede’s. This page really gives something for you to think about. It also is inspiring and should have more comments. Anyway, I’ve got some questions for you and hope that you can reply!
    1. How did you supply all those words? Dictionary? Thesaurus?
    2. What was one of your favorite words? Why?
    3. Discovering when you could write like that, what was the first thing that went into your mind?

      Hello Lauren,
      Thank you for your comment about my Landscapes descriptive piece and for
      giving me your blog address which I will be sure to look at.
      When I write, words fill my head which sometimes I don’t know the meaning to.
      I supply the words and if I don’t know the meaning, I search it up on
      Oxford Dictionaries.

      I love the word pierce which I use a lot in my descriptions because it
      creates tension and makes it more interesting.

      I browsed the internet and found a website by the name of Literacy Shed.
      This website provides photos, inspirational pieces and entertaining story
      starters.
      With a photo of a lonely cactus in the middle of the sandy desert, I
      created this piece.

      Here is the name of my blog showing all the work I have completed this year:

      Thanks again for your curiosity filled comment,
      Hanna.
