Kaniwhaniwha DOC Campsite on Mount Pirongia


Alistair, 12

Rustle, rustle. As I stand up I view a whole bush surrounding me.
Chatter, chatter. As I walk around I hear words of warmth and comfort.
Splish, Splash. As I head down to the stream I hear the water calling me.
Wishy, washy. As I stand in the water it covers my feet as it sparkles in the sun.
Bush surrounding me, I feel protected.
Warmth and comfort, I feel loved by others.
Water calling me, I feel possessed.
Water covers my feet, I feel calm and collected.
Kaniwhaniwha, dancing stream, a magical spot.
