Inspired by ‘Spiritual Song of the Aborigine’ from my late aunt in the Dreaming – Hyllus Maris.
“I am a child of the Dreamtime people, part of this land like the gnarled gum tree. I am the rivers softly singing, chanting our songs on the way to the sea. My spirit is the dust-devils, mirages that dance on the plains. I awakened here when the earth was new … no other man of a different hue. I am this land and this land is me.”
