My Forest

Coatesville

Auckland

Annicke, 9


I walk in the forest on the soft green grass. Trees block the sun as it tries to grab me. I stop in the stream. The crystal clear water laps my feet. I hear birds singing. Possums leap in the trees. Rabbits hop, looking for food. I walk to the lake. The water is like chocolate gone wrong. My dog is hot. She lies in the water. She shakes and tiny droplets fly everywhere like popcorn popping from a bowl.
