  As I walked through the crisp cool air I stoped and looked up mesmerized by the clouds slowly drifting over my head the patterns diffrent but yet all the same. I suddenly started to run, the green leaves of the forest whipping past my head; an overwhelming feeling, joy. I twirled in the air the birds my music the well worn path my dance floor. I sunk down now I was the beast, the predator I growled a deep growl I was ruler of the forest, king of this domain. Then it started raining but I didint care I was an animal of the sea now, I let the cool drops of rain slowly drip down my body before cascading on the ground. But then I heard a voice and was no longer a being of the sea I was a bear cub slowly running into the strong protective arms of my mother.

Sorry it has been so long since I have written. The older I get the less time I have to write. Michael

Your writing is getting better as you get older. Good work, Michael!

I thought it was great. If writing is something that you love, then I can expect you to be a master by the time you're my age. :)
