I ngā hararaei i haere mātau ko tōku whānau ki Poripori nā te kaha o te rā. I te wā tuatahi i titiro au ki te wai, ko ōku whakaaro he tino ātaahua te āhua o te wai. Āpānoa, i panaia ahau e tōku tungāne. Aaaaa! Āhua whakatio i ahau. I te katakata tōku whānau, pīrangi ahau ki te pana i a rātou. Engari kāore i taea e au te mahi pērā. Heoi i haere tonu te pukuriri. I muri pea i te toru, i te whā miniti ka tīmata tōku tinana ki te neke. Āhua mahana ahau mmmmm! Ka kī ahau ki tōku whānau, “Kei te haere atu ahau.” Ka oma ahau mai i tētahi toka nui kātahi ka peke! “Pōhutu ana!” Kei te tōpunitia tōku māmā, kei te katakata ahau ināianei, Māmā!
