"Waiheke Isle"

I was sitting on my favorite rock on Hakerua Bay, playing with the cheeks of the starfishes. Beautiful translucent ocean flowers were dancing under the water tickling my feet. My boyfriend is at the shore. He is gathering those strange form seaweed creatures and making a bouquet for me.Watching him distance brought me back to the ancient time. The time even before "MAORORI" people settled here, when every being was just One. As I swam back quietly,a father with three children at the shore were surprised at my sudden appearance. "We thought you were a mermaid !" the father said. I smiled "Yes, I am!"Three kids were staring at me with their mouth gasping with astonishment.
