I’m one of the ships that lives in Sheepshead bay.

At morning, I woke up by the fresh baked waffle, seeing people arrived in day.

Then I spent my time looking at who came here.

People were talking, smiling, laughing, waiting for what will happen at night.

I carried them towards the ocean, for fishing or partying.

Listening them dancing or singing in my body.

I love my neighborhood.

Dear Huiwen:

I am happy after seeing your photograph because the picture of the boat in the bay is beautiful and looks good.

One part of your work that stands out for me is the poem. I think this is creative because it is eloquent and well written.
