marshmallow snow

In summer when I go to the beach

the wind flips the ocean across the sand

like marshmallows, but this morning

the winter wind whipped the sea foam

into freezing chunks of snow

(or so it seemed!).


We don’t get snow on Auckland’s west coast.┬áBut I love the snow when I visit the South island. There was so much sea foam on the sand this morning it looked spectacular. The wind was gusting it everywhere. What does the snow look like to you? Send a poem to paulajoygreen@gmail.com. Include your name, age, year and name of school.
