"Haiku", by Leo Yang, follows in the tradition of the nature-based haiku, using precise, segmented language to summon a forceful image.
Similar splashes of color dominate A Watercolor Portrait of a Perfect Backyard, a playful scene by Chloe Zhang.
In marked contrast is the earthy and barren landscape presented to us by Eason Tang in Nature as We Know It (in a cartoon style you might recognize from his ongoing comic series, Rabbit Revenge).
Finally, "The Great Outdoors", an essay by Tim Mei, uses descriptive language to transport us across state lines and famous landmarks, by way of family trip.
