The Picnic

By Gabby Wilcox, year 8, St Sampson’s School

Walking up the pale, gravel path way, the little, smooth stones brushing your bare feet, looking up from the floor you see a forest, not a normal forest but a forest full of peace. Entering the trees, you catch a glimpse of the sunset, the purples, pinks, reds, oranges, yellows and blues melting together. Is this a daydream? The trees have yellow fairy lights swinging from tree to tree, altogether forming a circular shape. In the middle of the trees you see a picnic blanket, it's blue and white checked. It is at that moment that you see your favourite person sat, enjoying this moment with you, to share the laughter and enjoy the picnic. As you open up the wooden picnic basket you see a variety of fruits, vegetables, sweet and savoury foods. Together you get through the food and lay there, enjoying the moment, not knowing whether it really is the reality. As you lay there in the silence, you notice the birds singing their own happy songs in harmony and the gentle breezes of the wind. The sun eventually goes down and you see the stars through the perfect circle made by the trees. They are twinkling. The moonlight shines down on you when you feel yourself drifting off, hoping you'll wake up where you are now.
