Walking the Abel Tasmen

Phoebe , Year 7

Walking the Abel Tasman

Cicadas pulse
Like the fire of summer
My sturdy walking shoes
Hang off the deck
Covered in thick
Abel Tasman sand
The wood pigeons
Swoop over my head
Escaping from the heat
Clear seawater
Glide up golden sand
Kayaks gently floating past
Water splashing at the kayaker’s feet
We search for the glow worms
on our evening walks,
Only leaving footprints
