A dolphin is like a waterfall.
Silver and shiny
Rushing everywhere,
Day and night.
And leaping to great heights,
Swimming strongly, powerful and skilful,
It gracefully somersaults and sends up a spray of water

It is as playful as ever,
Agilely going in and out the rocks
Calling its friends with a drowning sound
And , athletically swimming round and around.

But on an ordinary day, in the hot summer
When the river dries up,
It’s calm for a while,
But he’s  still watching
Waiting for the day when he can come and play again.

The volcano is a powerful dragon.
Strong and deadly.
He flies across the human’s homes.
With his massive wings flapping furiously.
Destroying human’s homes with his deadly hot flames,
Frightening and killing everything in its path.
Drooling lava all over the city.
The death machine of the century.
Frightening millions with his rumbling call.
But on a ordinary day,
All is calm and he stands alone
Waiting for his time to come,
His wings flapping quietly.

The volcano is a powerful dragon.
Strong and Deadly.
He flies across the people’s homes.
With his massive wings flapping furiously.
Destroying homes with his deadly hot flames.
Frightening and killing every single thing in his path.

Drooling lava all over the city.
The death machine of the century.
Frightening millions with his rumbling call.
The earth trembling under his power.

But on an ordinary day.
When all is calm.
He stands alone, waiting for his time to come.
His wings flapping quietly.
Puffing clouds of smoke.

The Fire Within

The volcano is a powerful dragon,
Strong and deadly
He flies across the humans homes
With his massive wings flapping furiously.
Destroying humans’ homes with its deadly hot flames,
Frightening and killing every single thing in its path

Drooling lava all over the city
This is the death machine of the century!
Frightening millions with his rumbling call
He fills the air with his presence,
Spitting with fury, steaming with anger

But on an ordinary day,
When all is calm,
He stands alone, waiting for his time to come,
His wings flapping quietly.

A Tsunami

A tsunami is a Bengal tiger.
Sharp and fast
He leaps on his prey,
Crushing all in its way.
The people run
Shouting and screaming.
He waits silently
For his next victims.

A Snowstorm is a Wolf

A snowstorm is a wolf,
The ice-mountain dog howling
With blizzard pressure,
Making it pretty impossible to walk.
With ice-cold breath that coats his white paws
he stretches over his big rock.

A snowstorm is a wolf,
A white coated god!
But when the sun comes up,
He stretches over his Giant-Mountain-Like rock.

Snow Leopard

A snowstorm is a snow leopard
White and silent.
She leaps across the ice,
Soundlessly she walks across the snow,

As she teaches her cubs to cover their tracks,
With love and gentle care she looks after them.
She protects them from hunters,
She freezes-statue like when she senses enemies.

But on an ordinary day,
When she is calm and all is well
She melts away into her den
And settles down for her peaceful sleep,

A forest fire is a fire breathing dragon
Evil and determined
He flies across sky
With his fire breath burning down villages, down to the ground
He hunts for his prey from the sky
As he walks the trees fall to the ground.
He’s untameable like a fire
But on an ordinary day
He’s asleep in this cave
Protecting his gold.

A Tsunami is a Rhino
Strong and powerful
He charges towards his enemies
Bringing fear under his feet,

Fast and strong he runs
Leaving nothing in his path,

Short tempered is he
Making everyone run away
From even the sight of his tremendous face,

As he retreats
As quickly as he came
It is quiet and still
All around is bare
And nothing would you find.

A Forest Fire is like a Destructive Dragon
Colossal and powerful
He destroys anything in his way
With his spiky talons and swishing tail
The big green trees he burns
Crushing and killing every living thing

His eyes as red as Rubies
He moans his cry for victory
Trampling all of the plants
The hot burning fire settles
He wanders back to his cave
Where he will sleep for years and years

But on an ordinary day
When he’s dormant in his cave
He snores and rests, thinking, waiting
While he’s silent as a bird!
