Bay of Plenty/Coromandel

Teesha, 12

Every breath I take, I inhale a fresh, crisp breeze of air. A feeling of freedom rises inside me. A feeling like a bird flying freely in the sky. Gentle gusts of wind tickle the leaves above eye level. Silence surrounds the forest, until chatter from boisterous humans disturb the scene. Sunlight slyly streams through to the unknown shadows of the woods; now the atmosphere around is dimly lit. In the light, the ground has troubled weeds due to the many feet pounding the path firm. Antique, auburn tree trunks lean before me, planting their roots in my memory. A memory I will never forget.
