Song 17

Yours is the Yoga
Of
Power
&
Vulnerability

You use it to cross the bridge of decision

This I Know

Because my Spirit
Tells
Me
So
~
All
This
Glows

In my thinking heart

As
I
Descend

The
Beauty
Of
Ara o Te Kinga

Oblivious
To
All
But your face

To love you
Is
To
Love
My
Soul

Above
Kotuku Whakaoho

In
Hopes

Sustaining
Grace

3/6/12 (Moana)

‘Ara o Te Kinga’ is the track up the side of Mt Te Kinga. Mt Te Kinga is my mountain. It overlooks Kotuku Whakaoho: in Maori, ‘flapping of the white heron’s wings’ (Lake Brunner). As I descended the track I pondered a phrase I’d heard from a friend who spoke of her use of ‘power & vulnerability’ in a challenging situation. Moving down the track I turned these complimentary opposites within me. I also connected with an image, one of the faces of my muse. I felt alive, hopeful, close to Poetry. To love the creative feminine, is to love my soul. The Self recently spoke to me: ‘You need to honour the rose within you, or suffer the consequences.’ 12/6/12
