In my lake town, I feel lonely. Even though it is a pretty crowded place, I feel like I don't belong. I can't wait until I'm old enough to travel through the water cycle and find new places! Then I might find the perfect place to live!
After a while in the park, I walk home. Suddenly I start to feel a strong pull. Curious, I follow it until I reach a river. Yay! I'm starting the water cycle! Off to the river! I jump in happily. The river is so much different than my lake home!
I continue drifting calmly down the river. Although I enjoy it here, I know it will not be my home. I will find somewhere else. Finally we reach our destination, a big blue ocean! The water is rougher here, and I soon decide that this new place will not be my home either.
My body starts to feel lighter, and I begin to float up to the sky. I'm evaporating! I keep floating and notice other vapor around me. Then I look down. Oh no! I'm so high up! I try not to scream. It would seem weird to the other vapor if they knew I was afraid of heights. I immediately know I could never live here.
After my embarrassing time in cloudland, I precipitate as snow back into a river. This time, the river is colder. I hope to get out of this river as soon as possible to see the next stage in the water cycle. I wonder if I'll end up as groundwater, runoff, or soil.
