Where does my heart belong?


Where the trees dance in the wind,
Blocking the sun out of my eyes,
And Piwakawaka tweets a song. 
It echoes through my ears
As it flies up and up.
I follow it with my eyes
Until it is to high to be seen.

Where my Airedale terrier dog 
Runs around 
With his tongue following behind.
He leaps into the harakeke 
Now nowhere in sight.
He pops his head out
Covered in the seeds.

Where a black and white furry creature
Runs after the black-backed gull. 
As it spreads its wings 
It flies around,
Casting shadows over the golden sand.
It drops something 
From up above
And the furry creature picks it up, 
Running back to
Drop it on the foot of his owner.

Where the pūtangitangi have chats
Leaving trails
As they swim slowly 
Across the Otakaro river.

This is where my heart sleeps.

I am learning to...
My example of personification will connect well with the object to help build an image for the reader.

How is it going? 
I am going well but I think I need to work a bit harder because sometimes I don't get the right scenes that will connect well with my personification.


My next step is to try and choose the right words.
