The smell of flowers
The scent of my birthday cake
My cat’s soft fur
The fuzzy blanket on my bed
The citrusy and tangy taste of oranges
The wonderful taste of strawberry cake
The sound of nails on a chalkboard, I find it calming
The sound of exploding TNT in minecraft, it’s very soothing
The sight of my unicorn, Crabcakes
The sound and sight of Creepers

I wake up every morning hearing the Florida Keys calling my
name. I go to sleep dreaming of tropical fish and prodigious, grand dolphins
splashing in the sea. With my eyes closed and my hands folded in front of my
face, I pray that my parents take me to the
Florida Keys to see majestic animals, go to the stunning beaches, and
snorkel in the clear-as-glass water.
Under the sea and on land, all the animals in the Florida
Keys almost make up a kaleidoscopic rainbow. Each and every animal has its own
beauty, or at least that is what I’ve heard. Silvery dolphins shoot out of the
ocean and do a flip or two. Multicolored parrots soar from palm tree to palm
tree, in search of their hatchlings. Schools of tropical fish swim in an
orderly fashion. Animals make the Florida Keys the most intriguing thing about
the trip. Sun smiling down upon me and marshmallow white clouds dangle from the
azure sky. Creamy white sand stretches out as far as the turquoise water with
waves rolling in the distance. I change into my bathing suit and quickly then
rush out to the icy-cold ocean to cool off, well, at least that’s what I would
do on the beach. Children would be
building sand castles and parents would read a book under a rainbow umbrella.
I’d go to the ravishing beaches everyday in the Florida Keys if I could.
With my mask and snorkel on, when I talk I sound like Darth Vader
from Star Wars. “Time to visit the enchanting fish of the sea!” I would
think. Snorkeling would be my favorite
activity to do. Massive, tan-colored brain coral and maroon fan coral would
grow in every direction I saw. Eels, clown fish, and barracuda would roam
freely in the sea.
The Florida Keys have everything I absolutely adore!
Magnificent animals that swim/walk/fly freely visit the gorgeous beaches full
of people. Snorkel at the best spots. They are my dream palace that’s actually
real!! I’ll just keep praying with all my heart, that I can one day go.
