“mauri” [2017]

Mauri

mauri:

the essence

or life force

of anything

everything that is

created

has mauri

the birds

the trees

the ocean

the fish

the rocks

the mountains

all contain

mauri

our unborn

have mauri

at the smack of conception

they have mauri

that mauri

enables life

and growth

and relation

and communion

it exudes

and floats

and gushes

and flows

its mauri

mauri continues

long after

it is breathed

and inhaled

exhaled

and moaned

its mauri

te mauri

came

te mauri

left

returned to where

he was sent from

loved without being seen

touched without being felt

blessed

and gone

to the arms of the

tipuna

I

Love

You

moko #1.

Moko #1 will be 9 this year. What a little man he is :)

He’s taught Me so much about being a child … being who we are …

He rocks the boat most days and has questions for miles! And both of those things, I absolutely love about him. He has the questions that no-one asks, because its ‘improper’ to do so; he’s the one who is somehow able to put things into questions when we can’t quite figure out what the question is, that needs to be asked … he’s the one that challenges everything that would appear to be right or normal, and stretches the imagination and the perception … i.e.: “who made god then???” … he’s 9 :)

I was there at his birth … and remember well the overwhelming feeling of becoming a grandmother … and the sheer joy that also came with becoming a grandmother.

And I love being a grandmother :)

He has big brown eyes and a beautiful smile. I love his nature and his way; his talents and character.

He is part of Me. I am part of Him.

And I absolutely love him to bits xoxox
