Song 33

Haramai – Haramai

Welcome
To
The
Land
Of
Red

To the heart zone

To
The
Rebuild

To
The
Guild
Of
The
Sure
Arising

To
The
Stand
Up
And
Start
Again

To
The
Plains

To
The
Hills

To
The
Harbour

To
The
Peninsular

To the new horizon

To the river that runs through the heart of it all
~
May your soul drink laughter

May your words stand tall

May joy become your partner

Your
Steps

Be
The
Belle
Of
The
Ball

A welcome & blessing to a friend. My friend was returning to Canterbury to offer her time, energy, & gifting in service, as the people of Christchurch & the wider Canterbury district looked to rebuild after the devastating earthquakes. In the poem the colour red symbolises passion, the feminine, the soul, the libido, the life force, the heart. Red also has a special significance to the people of Canterbury as red is the primary symbolic colour of the province. Its sports teams often wear a combination of red & black.
