Yesterday I walked the land, Up hills and down dales and Valleys I went. I felt like a kid again finding magical places where the ancients walked many moons ago. I walked along the river beds , saw quartz glinting in the sunlight..soft pebbles glistening with trickles of seasonal water flowing down the hill.
Found groves of Ghost Gums , standing like Sentinel's over the valley, These silent giants connected the earth and sky, as Black Cockatoo's had rest upon their limbs. The solar King circled above, watching it all from a distance. Riding the thermal winds on a picture perfect day. I followed the Kangaroo tracks that led me through the overgrown bush safely. To bodies of water that were home to the Frogs and Dragonflies.
I found Bleached Bones of animals past. Still a part of the land, with moss and lichen covering, slowly returning them to the Mother.
As I walked through this natural wonderland, I asked those that had gone before me to guide me.
I felt the ancestors from the beginning hear me.
I gave thanks for being able to be on this ancient land and gave a oath as a caretaker.
The land offered me many things yesterday, It welcomed me like a long lost daughter returning home.
My promise is to honour, love & protect her and all her creatures.
What a blessed day, with many more to come
