Matariki Poem ~ by Erina

7 Stars,
Dark clouds flowing by
the new moon beaming brightly,
Family and friends surrounding me

Smoke from fires lit,
smoked hangi,
moist  and damp

pride in my culture,
peace  and Love
respectful of matariki tradition

Salty and sweet,
creamy smoked air,
steam and tuna,
tasty dinner,
drink so juicy.

Beautiful singing,
wild wind,
7 sisters,
storms passing by,
tapping magic shoes.
