Willowbank: the kiwi house

Katja , Year 5

The pebbles crunch underneath my feet as I walk along the path.

A tall tower, arching above me. The māori designs, stare at me with their pāuā eyes.

To me, it seem as if they are trying to tell me,"you belong here. You must never leave."

As I walk through the arch, the whispers of nature surround me. I walk past the Keas, Kakas, and Kunekune pigs.

I take no notice of everything else. Into the old broken-down mine.

As I step into the dark atmosphere, I relax. My eyes search out my favorite kiwi. She is there.

I know her.
