Sami’s poem

Sami worked with our poet, Philip Wells, to create a poem called ‘Liyoboo’. The repetition builds a fantastic rhythm when performed aloud. Well done Sami, we especially love the similes you have chosen.



Is a pattern

Inside you –

Moving like lightning

In the water

There is a fast light flash

And then it is slow

Like a slug –


Then my arm is stretching too loud

Like my tummy is speaking

Like an elephant and

And it says strongly –
