Mountain,river,rain #1

Mountain, river, rain

the names of things
that sing my name
mountain, river, rain...

your mouth is an estuary -
may I drink from your lips?
let me guide your waters
to the well of my hips

new moon
the echo of strength
finding the body

feel the Mana in my breath
it is that of the North wind -
feel the Mana in my breath
I am maunga (mountain)
I am awa (river)
I am uapuukohukohu (rain)

  1. I love the names of things things that sing my name. So simply beautiful.

  2. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I'd like to use it (with due attribution) in a column I write. Have sent you a fb friend request, so as to discuss this more easily.

  3. Thank you Rosemary, look forward to learning more about your column.xx
