Song 58

I return to your world

As
Witness

To speak words; like Orca, Kereru and Breath

To

The

Of
Significance

With the simple presence of who I am

The
Friend
&
Stranger
I
Have
Become

I promise nothing

Except the liturgy of an open heart

I
Am
Born of the Earth

A
Witness

To

Whakapapa: this poem arose out of a comment made to me that one of the most important functions in a relationship is to provide ‘a witness’ to our partner or friend (or community) so their world can come to life. Being truly witnessed brings significance and animation into a person’s life.
