This is an entry to PurpleSkittles145's 3 round contest!!! It's about the picture of the converse and the camera ~xoxo

My camera is held steady,
Poised at the oak tree,
And I see things,
Things meant for me.
The sun shines through the leaves,
It sends buttery sparks,
All I see are faeries,
On their journeys they embark.
A clump of trees stand together,
Protecting something,
I see it is a monster,
But really, it is nothing.
The late autumn leaves scatter the ground,
Elves jump around underneath,
But you cannot feel it,
When they nip you with their teeth.
My world is not like yours,
With your hurt and pain,
Mine is filled with happiness,
Laughter, joy and gain.
But once the camera is put down,
And the disappointing life sets in,
I trundle back home, camera hanging weakly,
I will come back to my world again.

This is a great poem! It has a meaning, and i liked that you didn't just state it (like: whenever i hold up my camera i see a new world) You made us think:D and i like that (i hope i'm not confusing you)You used creative words to give us "hints" to what the meaning is!!!
