Children often ask me where I get my ideas from. I usually say the world. Ideas just come to me like little flocks of birds. Little starting points jump out at me.
This poem I wrote fits our Winter theme this week. It was the most amazing sight! Maybe you can have a go at a cloud poem for the Winter challenge. Where to send it is below!
Today at the beach
I saw a skinny cloud
sticking its long skinny head
up like a periscope, as though
it wanted to see over the Tasman Sea
to Australia, and see what all
the other clouds were doing
and to see (most especially)
if any other cloud
knew how to look like
a long skinny periscope!
