Kiwi Heartbeat Poetic Chants - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

are tuned in distempered souls
mānuka honey is kiwi wild
wind clover flax fibre twist plait knot

ropes pull waka
rata season scarlet
letter tui bellbird chant

forest call
dawn chorus
awake spirits

melody songs
kauri earth rooted
sky stand poet

chant flies
spindle poet taxes
starvation soul

screaming write
visions boil in own blood cells
eyes boil flay flesh in vision quests

time spins fast
in seer sight
ebb tide beaches siren whales

water birth born to cry ocean songs
communicative across vast
surge arena Pacific ocean songs

mist child of Aotearoa
ride wide current ocean tides
to tip of embracing Cape Reinga

Pohutukawa
tree is rest eternal spirit
step home waiting...
