Colour Poem: Untitled

By Yuri

Red is the chilli in dry noodles
Feels like its hot and spicy on my tongue
Looks like juice in a seed
Tastes of fire in my mouth
Reminds me of hot weather, in my home in Thailand.

Godzilla movies are my favourite thing to watch because in Godzilla: Final Wars, Godzilla goes against 25 monsters and he wins which shows how strong he is, Godzilla makes me feel happy, because I know I can defend myself.

By Asal

The boy walked slowly as he went to the shops to buy gum, so he doesn’t have to get the gum off the floor. That gum had people stepping on it, and that was disgusting.

Yellow is the sparkle of the sun
Feels like listening to the song “Happy”
Looks like the perfect detail on a dandelion
Tastes of the nice pop of candy corn
Reminds me of the fluffy taste of marshmallow peeps

This object is perfume. It is a rectangular prism glass that has a golden colour cap and a very sweet smell when used. I got my perfume a month before I came to Australia and I first used it when I was in the Jordanian Airport before going to Australia.

This towel is from when I was born, when the priest baptised me. My mum put me in the towel, the colour is white, it was so big and has my name on it. I was crying but when they put me in the towel, I stopped crying. Until now, I still have it.

This object is a bracelet, which is like a zip. I have four of them and every one has a different colour. It was a gift from my dad on my 11th birthday. I haven’t moved it from my hand from the time that I first wore it. People like to ask me about it.
