Pirongia Mountain


Lucy, 11

The tall trees tower over me making an arch that stretches above my head. Vines like snakes wrap around the trees as though they’re trying to suffocate them. Collapsed trees lay on the ground creating soil for future saplings. Glimpses of sun peak through the leaves of the trees leaving specks on the ground. Beams of light shine in the clearing tracing a diamond on the stone path. A pitiful stream flows beside the path as we walk along. Water trickles off one rock to another creating a small waterfall. What a lovely spot to be in.
