Kaiteriteri Beach

Isabella , Year 8

My lungs breathe in a salty smell.
The waves are trembling.
My sister laughs with glee.
I tumble out of the car
grabbing my towel.
Sand cushions my toes.
The sun echoes against my back.
I run across the beach
finding an ungathered spot.
I toss my towel into the burning sand.
I let my spirit run wild
and weave between crowds.
All for one thing I love the most.
My legs hit the water
and I dive underneath the waves.
Knowing nothing has changed.
