My Place

If I look only at the top of the mountain, I may miss the fossils, caves and crystals along the mountainside that can teach me about time and my place in the universe. Taking time to touch the fossils, to sit in the cave, to feel the energies of the gifts She has left, takes us deeper into the mysteries, all are sacred, all hold emotion, all are teachers.

Every part of this Land is sacred to the people I hold close to my heart,

Every single gum leaf, coastal cliff, mountain valley, and desert,

Every vapour of eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree and fire.

Every taste of mountain devil and callistemon on my lips sweet desire.

Every single gum tree carries the memories of the ancestors of this land,

Every blood spill, every fear is what I now have on my hands.

For everyone,

Is one.
