Maori Instinct

maori instinct notes.JPG

Like Adam and Eve
With leaves covering
Our naked bodies

We arrived by canoe
At the edge of a
Great island
With exotic
Flora and fauna

Using the beautiful
Brush and dipping
Our hands into
The calm Pacific

We learned
And we grew

Shark toothed tools
Fiber baskets
Bamboo fishing poles
And fire

We lived in the
Caves and came out
In the day

Followed the jungles
And scaled mountains

Still we grew

And then one day
We wished upon
The island’s bounty

To teach us a
Way
To fly high as the sky

So we learned
And we grew

By handfuls
We built a
Temple, a pyramid
Ethereal and elevated

To rise off a
Mountain above
The coast and
All the rainforests

And with that
Temple our souls
Grew

One with the
World and
No longer lonely

We had
Found a meaning
Humbled and at home

We were now
Maori
