Mihi mutunga

Harakeke, Mirror Lakes, Fiordland National Park

Mihi Mutunga Kore

The Voice slid me from my slumber and into the grip of my pen.

Write this down!

It is a mihi (acknowledgement) of all that is, and our place in it.

Our place as part of it.

And it of us.

Teenei au ka mihi ki te

Ao Kaakaariki

Ao Kahurangi

Ao Whero

Ao Koowhai

Ao Maa

Ao Pango

Ao Aniwaniwa

Ko te iti, ko te nui

Ki te Ao kei te tama waahine,kei te tama taane, kei te tai tokerau, kei te tai tonga

He mihi mutunga kore

Tihei mauri ora.
