Dadirri

Into the arms of the mother

I surrender my being

Heart and soul

As I loosen all of the striving

Centring deeply inside the silence

And my breath

As my being opens to embrace

The mystery

Have we forgotten how

To listen with reverence

To country and to nature

To immerse ourselves completely

Within the peace

Hearts held quietly

Open to the joy

That bubbles up

As if from an underground spring

Revelling as our silent body

Hums with the vibration of life

Singing songs of creation

And becoming

(Dadirri is a concept from the aboriginal peoples

of the Ngangikurungkurr

that speaks of reverence for country, silence and nature)

  1. This is beautifully written. Yes I believe many of us have forgotten. “Revelling as our silent body
    Hums with the vibration of life
    Singing songs of creation”.
    Great lines and a great truth. Here in NC nature is so loud she demands to be heard. I am blessed to have lots of critters around to watch, listen to and be blessed by. Thank you for this. Love 💕 you my friend. Joni
