Mana


(Mana is Maori for strength, courage, fortitude, one’s essence of spirit, steady, gentle strong.)

Mana

Up, out from deep ocean

Islands emerge in primordial light

Soon home to fantastical life.

Brave peoples find this place,

Bringing their love,

Family ,

Mana.

Place of refuge for all who come

All seeking new beginnings,

A sacred place for their mana

To be, finally,

Home.
