A Summers Days Climb

Matamata NZ

Waikato

Amelie , 11

Warm sunlight speckles the leaves of the towering tall tree. Two miniature beams of wood lead to a moss covered branch, twirled round as if a ballerina, striking her final move. Higher still, a cluster of leaves whisper the secrets of what they have seen below. Lifting your foot high over the clusters of leaves, as not trying to interrupt their conversation, you reach the final branch. The final branch snakes inwards as it nears the top, where the leaves open up, giving you the view of radiant sun, and white clouds.
