Can you stand?

Not bend nor break

Under bully or bulldozer?

Can you speak?

With grace and beauty,

About love and land?

 Can you hear?

You, that stand upon Her,

Step down!

Be still and listen.


She stirs.

She stands.

She speaks.

For John and Stella Behn.  Written by Pandora Long. 


About Nikki Brighton

I live in Howick, between the river and the hills. I enjoy pre-dawn walks in the streets with my dog, sitting on the veranda with crochet and tea, and harvesting vegetables outside the kitchen door.
