On The Whanganui River

Whanganui River

Taranaki

Daniel , 9

The untouched paradise of the Whanganui River
Gives a glimpse of the Aoteroa of long ago
A jurassic wilderness where the moody sky changes
From dark obsidian to shining sapphire
The river, stirred up by the torrents flowing from Mount Ruapehu, is the colour of caramel fudge
The trees lining the canyon are as green as dewy grass
All we hear is the sound of the Keruru’s heavy wingbeats echoing down the valley
And the roar of hidden waterfalls cascading down as a cacophony of nature’s teardrops
I have found my peaceful connection
