Poppy rest in peace

Stand still
And breathe
It'll pass
This emptiness
And loss

Life's lived
Life ends

In this moment
Memories
Are hidden
Behind
Sadness

Stand still
Breathe deep
And say
Goodbye

When my tears dry
Memories of you
Will ease this pain
Rest in peace

Red Marigold with rain drops



Water drops
Glistening spheres
Falling
Onto shimmering
Petals

Greeting


Hello!
You're home
I've been waiting

You open your mouth to speak,
Which turns into a wide yawn
Then you stretch into an arch

Hello!
You're home
I’ve been waiting

While waiting and listening out
You're eyes drifted closed
And you curled up to sleep

I just dozed
For a little while
Until you came home

You were listening out
For the sound of footsteps
For the keys rattling

Welcome home!

You greet me
Rolling over at my feet
Fur rubbing across the carpet

ANZAC Dawn


As we remember them
Wind rustles the leaves
As we remember them
Light wakens in the sky
As those words are spoken
We remember them

Orokonui music

Breathing ~ Sounds

Inhaling ~ Words

 

Music flowing

Hovering


Moving


Inside air


Words form

Echoing


Beating


Rhythm


 

Music played

Merging


Reviving


The soul


 

 

 




 

 

Music played in the main building at the Dunedin Orokonui Ecosanctuary sounds extraordinary. Both Ariana Tikao and previously Delgirl both sounded fantastic within this space.
