Standing there looking across the jagged hills…I felt my heart beating in my body. I could see the orange crumbling rocks reaching for the fluffy clouds – attempting to snare them as they are floating by! The bird of prey swooped round in a circle like it was trying to grab an innocent mouse as it scurried across the orange rocky floor…
As I walked over to the cactus and the last remaining grass I reached out and touched the dusty plants. That was when I realised the sound of wind chimes whistling through one ea and coming out the other. I wondered if it was the bird above. But was it a market place over the hills?

Standing here, looking behind the dry valley. A cold breeze makes me shiver. Wind charms can be heard all around. It seems as if the last drop of rain fell centuries ago. The last bird is swooping overhead, hunting for his prey. As I walk on, rocks crumble under my feet, spices can be smelt from a distance. A red rock was once huge, now in tiny pieces. A parched dinosaur has his head and part of his neck buried in the ground desperately searching for the last drop of water. A spiky cactus stuck out as if it was a shield of spikes. Few blades of grass are left. Field mice scurry for the last bits of food. I wonder what lies ahead this mystery land.

Standing here, staring at the parched, dry land that’s full of red eroding rock. Gentle wind chimes that fill the air with a gentle, soothing melody. I can see rodents scurrying on the hard land trying to avoid its seeking prey. Sniffing the breezy air, I can smell rotting sand that’s being swept away by the powerful wind. The sapphire, crystal sky has balls of candyfloss floating gently across it. An abandoned city lies beneath the depths of the rocks. Why has it been abandoned and where have all the people gone?

Standing here, looking out I saw over the hill a crumbling rock as if it was a dragon! Also I could see a lively bird looking for a scrumptious prey for its dinner. Looking up wiping the sweat off my face I saw the sun blazing at the land below. Feeling the heat on my face I could hear a bird squawking in the most beautiful blue sky! I could taste the soothing air like water.

Standing here, looking across the rocky chasm there was a dragon guarding the final patch of snow and searching for the last drop of mineral moisture it could find. I can hear the wind blowing wind chimes. It sounded like there was a huge house in the distance. The red and rocky canyon had big eroded rocks all the way to the end. The ground was red sugar. High in the sky a jet black bird flew above with eyes of a predator! The rocks fell in the canyon like they were blind when the wind chimes got loader the wind blew. I got cooler and cooler as the wind blew in the strong breeze. I smelt the strange smell of gravel in the distance. I wonder if there are houses in the distance?
The crumbling rocks were constantly falling from the eroding rocks. The bird got closer and closer and then it just turned around and flew away. I turned around…I saw a giant green house!

I think there is a massive green tree at the top. In the tree there is a mouse squeaking because he wants to get out.
I feel scared about crawling to the top.

I crept slowly up the stairs. At the top there is a magician’s secret palace. The door is made of wood and the door was creaking. The magician was doing a spell.
