JAL Prize Special Mention Winners

Time travelling seed
Dandelions through the wind
Starting fresh again
Standing alone at dusk
My leaves swaying with the wind
Wishing for a friend

JAL Prize Winners

Growing all year long
Blossoming in the bright sun
Watching like a bird
Flaming orange eyes
Hooting in the furry trees
Orange leaves falling
Bubbling and burbling
Tiny fish swim slowly
Deep in the blue sea

Small turtles swimming
Through the water so slowly
Green reflection strong
Cherry blossom trees
Always make me nearly sneeze
I’m mad at those trees
A great vast field
A sea of green
Wrapped around my feet

Trees swaying in the wind
Their leaves fly across the sky
The crisp autumn air
Snowball fights are fun
Fluffy white snow for snowmen
Sledging down steep hills
Purple bluebells sway
On a cool and clear spring day
It smells like perfume

Muddy soggy ground
Exploding bulbs peering out
Winter at its end
Sand flows to the sea
The ocean breeze upon me
A gentle wave forms
The leaves of the oak
From green to orange to bare
The colours of change

Great Walstead School

Jude Long (13)
Hockerill Anglo-European College

Soren Young (12)
Gresham’s Prep School

 

Crisp orange petals
Blowing in the breeze
Scattered like my mind
Iridescent flash
Fast fluttering dragonfly
Bright river dancer
Winters day
Hills covered by mist
In the distance

Royal Grammar School

Nancy Anderson (11)

I have a key for my garden tree
When I open it
I can see my grandma again
The glorious sea
It’s colourful underneath
It sings me to sleep
Tiny little rose
Shining brights vermillion
Watch out you’ll get picked!
