Yesterday I left home when it was dark which gave me an idea for a poem. Flying down I saw skinny strips of clouds like skinny strips of cloudy floss.
I drove straight to Rangiora High School from the airport. On the way I discovered Green’s Road. I made up poems with a Year 10 and a Year 9 class that I posted on my other blog, NZ Poetry Shelf. I really loved listening.
And then another idea for a poem arrived because my hotel has a cat. It came and miaowed at my door as though it knew I have a book called The Letterbox Cat. The cat needs a poem but now it has a photo.
Yeah NZ Book Council. Thanks for bringing me south!
Talk soon, Paula
