Hidden in Canopy

Eskdale

Hawke's Bay

Nicole, 11

As the animals echo their muffled cries through the valley, I contemplate in my wannabe treehouse.
The descending steps of the ladder lead to the dewy grass.
The light glares through the aging leaves onto the open, wooden platform.
Sweet, fresh air encloses me in a hug, dampening my skin.
This is my sanctuary, hidden from the world.
