Wanaka

Rani , Year 7

sun reflects off the water covered
by a blinding shimmer
Hopping in the water thinking that its
cold but
wrong
it's warm
as my body relaxes. Walking out

to sea my foot gets wrapped in
weed. Being careful
not to step on the sharp shells

Far away from shore the water

gets deeper and deeper
it's already

Up to my neck. Rani, Rani, run
I come on time to go swimming
back I trip face

first in to the salty water hopping
out I’m cold like a penguin without fur
wrap myself in the towel like putting a
fluffy jacket on

water sparkling
under the sunset, turning
orange as I leave
into the mountains
