A Magical Place by Zara Beveridge (Highly Commended)

The sky was as pink as a rose petal and the wind stung my face as I ran along the soft mossy grass,
The trees whispered and danced in the wind, it was like magic.
The fresh smell of flowers filled my nose like a roast dinner.

The river shone as the last rays of sunlight disappeared behind the mountains,
And the moon rose and the stars appeared like they had just woken from a long sleep.
They disappeared like they came and the sun rose like a plane that had just taken off.
The sun warmed my body like an oven heating up a warm dinner.

Splash the water went when I landed in it.
I felt like all warmth was being drained from me.
The water was pushing on me from all directions.
I loved this place it felt magical!
