The sun dazzled in the sky above the possum’s nest. They had built their nest in the hollow of an ancient eucalyptus tree next to a forgotten, narrow track. Half hanging out of the possums’ welcoming nest was Susie. She looked at the small twigs that were woven together which made the family’s nest. She wondered how the mixture of twigs and leaves could keep her warm and safe. The whole nest looked untidy, but there was everything they needed. Below the nest, Susie gazed at the sandy,dry grass, which was desperately in need of water, and wished she had more energy to play with her siblings.
