This week it is been raining and snowing in Aotearoa.

It has been cold.

It feels like a Cat-in-the-Hat moment when we stuck inside and we have to INVENT INSIDE things to get warm and not be bored.

Writing poems might get me warm and I am never bored. I especially love writing rain poems!

 

Here is my ‘When I am cold’ poem from The Letterbox Cat

Tuesday

The wind was frothing
the ocean across the sand
like white southern snow.

It was flicking sheets
of black sand in my eyes,
and hail was biting
my cheeks.

I was running into
a stinging pillow of weather
and I felt so awake.
