Nature writing piece

A closer look

Sun is shining over the green grass across land. Patches of flowers and sticks all around me. I start to run and prepare myself for a interesting run. I turn right on the grassy fields, some blades of grass high some low. Now as I get further into the conservation land the grass is less greener but the sun is shining brighter. I see a plant with green leaves, then I take a closer looks and I see that the left side is brighter than the right just by taking a closer look. 

     I have been trying to run a lot recently but if I can’t then I just get outside, shoot some lacrosse balls and come inside. I usually run in the conservation land which is right outside my house and is a public land that most of my neighbors use. So I laced up my shoes and headed out on my run that I was going to use as the English assignment that I had to do. 

     Once I headed of on my run I tried to observe the things around me this time, because I used to not do that before. On everything that I saw I tried taking a closer look at my surroundings, when I looked a tree the first time all I saw was just a plain old tree but when I took a closer look I saw that there were lots of more leafs on one side than the other. When I was running past my neighbors house at first it looked the same, but when I took a closer look I saw that they hadn’t took their Christmas reef of yet. When I ran into a spot with yellow flowers I noticed all the bees around it were all near 3 flowers while the others flowers had no bees hovering over them.  I saw all of this just by taking a closer look at the surroundings around us especially nature. 

     I didn’t realize before what happens if you just take a closer look at your surroundings and the big difference it makes. If I didn’t take a  loser look at the nature and surrounding around me I wouldn’t of noticed the things that I noticed. 

     Next time you go for a run I would highly encourage to take a closer look at your surroundings and it will make a difference.

I can very much agree that we need to take a closer look at our surroundings and cherish that nature that is around us. And I like how you said I saw all of this just by taking a closer look at the surroundings around us especially nature. This is a great sentence! Good job Chad.

Kevin Yuan

Nice essay, I really like how you concluded. Great job.


I liked how you started off by writing from your point of view as you begin to run. I also liked your conclusion.

Willie Belle

The part when you start off running was really cool, Ive never seen that before. I can easily relate.
