Usually I write a poem with my head in the clouds and my feet on the ground.
Last week I flew to Wellington and wondered what it would be like to write a poem with my head on the ground and my feet in the clouds.
I used my eyes to hunt for a poem through the aeroplane window.
What strange place can you go hunting for a poem? And use your eyes to spot things?

I am flying through a blue
that falls all the way to the ground,
but my feet are in the clouds.
I can see Mt Taranaki
with no winter clothes,
and white caps of foam
waving on the sea.
I wave back.
Have a go at writing a poem from somewhere different. Use your eyes to help you.
