Lake Hayes

Lake Hayes

Otago

Audrey, 9

I stare at the clear water, longing to dive in and swim to the other side.
The reflection of the mountains on the lake was magical.
To me there was an island underneath the silent and calm water.
The sky was pure grey, almost the colour of the lake.
The mountains beyond were glaring at me.
They shined with a million shades of green.
Not a soul could be seen on the lake.
The chirping of birds, the only thing to be heard.
A dying tree, leaned over the lake, threatening to fall down any moment.
The leaves on the tree were drooping, trying to dive into the lake like me.
