Spiky....all right

Something very peaceful happened. Mrs. Barks stood up an said, "Room 12 line up at the water fountain." So we all lined up. Mrs. Barks told us to go and lie down on the field. I laid next to Rauf. Mrs. Barks said to close our eyes and listen to all the sounds. I heard the clicking sounds of the cicadas and sad chirping birds. Suddenly, something pricked me. It was the grass, so I looked at it and it was spiky all right! Then I saw something move across the sky. It was billowy clouds. They were floating slowly in the air. Mrs. Barks told us to go to the shade, use our hat for a pillow, and close our eyes. So we did, and I saw nothing but complete darkness! Something was tickling me - it was the air. Suddenly something pricked me again - it wasn't the grass this time, it was the bark and leaves! Then it was time to go back to class.
