TIME: Late Fall
SETTING: A garden
Hey everyone. How’s it going? Everyone hanging on okay? Geez, it is getting cold at night, isn’t it? I’m sure glad we haven’t been cut back and thrown onto the compost pile. I hate spending the winter rotting.
I’m hungry. Is there anything to eat in this garden? Oh, look seeds. I do love some seeds in the winter time.
Hey, where am I? Where’s the garden? It’s dark in here. And there isn’t a bunch of room. Hold on, something’s happening. I’m falling. Oh, yuck, what is this around me?
Where am I? What happened? What is all this around me? Oh my. It’s food for me to grow in, isn’t it? I know what I’m supposed to do now. I’m supposed to germinate. I’m going to be a whole new plant. In my own space. Oh, I am so ready for this. I am. First, let me grow a little root, then a shoot. Pretty soon, I’ll have leaves and flowers. Then more seeds. That bird eating me was the best thing that every happened to me.
Love it! I'm sharing it with my teacher friends. Kids will enjoy the part about the bird poop.
