Muriwai

its many meanings

often hidden

or forgotten

a backwater lagoon

an entrance to the underworld

but to those who know

she is

the chiefly beach

Te One Rangatira

 

We have settled

at the southern end of Motutara

where ancient Tirikohua

reminisces about Hawaiki

 

With mist in our eyes

a wall of cloud

moving fast from the sea

toward cliff top

pathway of the eyes

Te Ara Kanohi

flying under cover

her long tread

worn

over hills

disappearing

but the view lingers

in our minds

coastal waters

stretching to the horizon

far beyond the Island of the Gleaming

Motu o Haea

now spoken as Oaia

 

Every day

with each breath

we fall magically deeper

our children’s placenta

lying grounded

in this wild place

trees rustling hard

amongst generations

our voices will be heard

with the wind
