At my Uncle's

Manawahe

Bay of Plenty/Coromandel

Tamati , 12

At my Uncle’s House

Manawahe Road up a steep drive.
The sea is calm and is a reflection
Of the baby blue sky.
The sea is rough and loud.
You glance from the top of the hill.
Sea view, smoking hot white island.

Tall, black, fast horse.
You lurk in the shadows at night
Like a phantom.
Hungry horse has heaps of hay.
He hangs around the house all day.

You can ride motorbikes on the beach.
My uncle's motorbike goes brrm brrm.
It’s a 250cc work horse.
After a hard day's work.
My uncle is a squealing pig when he sleeps.
