My River

Ngaruroro river

Hawke's Bay

Ella, 11

I can feel the sharp pieces of smashed rocks piercing through my feet as I walk along the river bed. The bright colourful sun beams down onto the calm flowing water. I can smell fresh but salty air with a hint of sea moss flying up into my nostrils. Hearing bangs and clutters as the water dances down over the edge of a small waterfall is music to my ears.
