After a couple of frantic days I finally have time to write my Day 5 poem (very late!). This took me way too long to write this poem. It took me awhile to just sit down and think of how I was going to start and where. Thank God, it all came to me. It was a bit hard to think of “not so clichéd” metaphors but I think I got it down on the end.
Day 5: Map, Ode, Metaphor
The challenge: write about in general terms map(s) or places, in a form of an ode and also by slipping in some metaphor(s) while at it.
I present you my poem below…
Where is the Long White Cloud? ( I thought you’d never ask!)
So the Long White Cloud is Aotearoa. Aotearoa is the Maori name for New Zealand and Aotearoa translates to the Long White Cloud. With this poem I wanted to pay homage to this country that I call home and share a little bit of where I came from.
