Remembering New Zealand

This is just a short poem and I had planned to add more photo’s with it but for some reason that didn’t quite work. Still getting used to wordpress at the moment but I’m thinking about writing something more of my time in New Zealand, if I do I shall add more photo’s with it.

Remembering New Zealand


All summer long

The blue stretched beyond the mountains

Where Whakapapa their mother,

Still tipped with snow,

Watched as we made for Tupou,

And when those midnight fireflies

Came to rest her pounamu eyes,

We laid on the docks and watched

For shooting stars in the night sky.

 Now a world away,

Aotearoa, stays in my memory

And I wonder if Whakapapa, their mother

Still remembers me.

  1. This is lovely-I very much enjoyed this poem. It makes me want to go to NZ!

  2. Aw, I’m pleased! It is a great place, lots of history and the sites are stunning! If you should ever get the chance to go you should. Thanks for reading Caroline!

  3. Now, those names of those places are the stuff legends are molded on. Reading them — Whakapapa, Tupou, and the rest — excites my mind to imaginings. 😉 Cheers.

  4. Hey, thank you so much! Got to love New Zealand, keep saying I will go back but time will tell! Glad you enjoyed it!
