I belong to a lovely group of kid-lit writers.
Today, Saturday, they play a Today Game.
Use the following:
Today I saw…
Today I felt(touch)…
Today I heard…
Today I smelled(olfactor.)..
Today I tasted…
Walking my walk this morning I used all the senses!
Here is what I experienced:
Today I saw some strange feathers high in a Kowhai tree. It was a Kereru (woodpigeon) hanging upside down to reach for some flowers.
Next, I heard and saw a flutter and scattering of feathers as the pigeon fell off the branch. A Tui was also singing its lovemaking tune in the next tree.
The fresh air and warming sun touched my skin. The earth smelled clean after the rains from the last few days. I could taste the fresh-made coffee of someone drinking it outside on his/her deck.
It is so good to be alive and well, to see, hear, feel, smell and even taste everything around me.
