ngā wai o Waiapu,
Whiti atu koe hine
marino ana e.E hine e
hoki mai ra.
Ka mate ahau
I te aroha e. Tuhituhi taku reta
tuku atu taku rīngi,
Kia kite tō iwi
raru raru ana e. Whati whati taku pene
ka pau aku pepa,
Ko taku aroha
mau tonu ana e. E kore te aroha
e maroke i te rā,
Mākūkū tonu i
aku roimata e.
They are agitated
the waters of Waiapu, But when you cross over girl
they will be calm.Oh girl
return to me,
I could die
of love for you. I have written my letter
I have sent my ring,
so that your people can see that I am troubled. My pen is shattered,
I have no more paper But my love
is still steadfast.My love will never
be dried by the sun,
It will be forever moistened
by my tears.
Mocking ourselves whenever we can.
Especially in our TV ads.
And we have no shame about dragging famous people into the fun.
Julian Dennison is one of our best exports. His role in Hunt for the Wilderpeople is one of the best ever in Kiwi film making.
Show where you go to get your groove back is the challenge.
Mostly this is the place where I feel the air blow through me and clean out all that has crowded in.
It sets me right again with the world.
I head for the sea.
Feeling very happy…the following photo got 2nd Prize in our biennial Arts & Murals Festival which just took place in Katikati. First time I have ever gotten anywhere in this competition. And with one of my favourite shots. Thinking of framing it and keeping it.
Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge. (Sporadic posting is alright if you’re unable to post each day.)
Once more we go…eeny, meeny, miny, moe…and pick another name out of cyberspace [which you should feel perfectly free to ignore!]…Sue.
