Verse of The Day
“Kei te hunga e wehi ana i a ia te mea ngaro a Ihowa; a mana e whakakite ki a ratou tana kawenata. E tau tonu ana oku kanohi ki a Ihowa; mana hoki e unu ake oku waewae i te kupenga.” (Psalm 25:14-15)

Lagoon at Ngunguru is a poem written as an exercise. I have three versions here, each using different line lengths, with only minor changes to the text. I have maintained three stanzas in each version.

Lagoon at Ngunguru

A spit in the sea, a dribble of sand,
white tussocked and strong,

haunt of hidden birds, their soft secret calls
skimming the surface, crying over

water, smooth, polished and buffed
for crossing with delicate footsteps.
