An Aboriginal Saying

We are all visitors to this time, this place.

We are just passing through.

Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love,

and then we return home.”

My Little One

Of The Stolen Heart

Your Small Delicate Soul

Taken From the Mother Core

Of Your Birth

By The Ever Changing Winds

Of The Unknown

Again And Again

The Cycle Is Unfulfilled

Your Little Soul

Knows Its Path

Yet Strangled By Souls

Of Those with Eyes Closed

And Ears Deaf

To The Very Existence

Of Our Journey

Little Spirit Soul

Care Not For What

They Do Not See

Hold My Hand

Little Sister

Walk With Me

I Will Show You the Colours

Of Our Beautiful Land

I Will Awake the Dreaming

In Your Heart

To See Those Visions

Of Eternal Beauty

That Play upon Our Soul

And Listen To the Laugh

Of Our Mornings

Early Call

Let Me See the Sun Rise

In Your Eyes

And Smile Her Smile

Upon Her Stolen Child

Sit With Me

My Princess from The Past

Feel the Soil

Beneath Our Feet

Hold My Hand

And Sing With Me

As The Winds Spirits

Cover Your Broken Heart

In Her Lullaby of Love

Care Not For Changes

That Cannot Hurt

Our Souls

You Are Pure Of Heart

And Pure Of Soul

Stay Close to Me

Little One

Recall the Times Of Long Ago

Our Souls Belonged

To The Skies and Heavens

And The Soils of Our Earth

Belonged To All

For You Little Spirit From

The Dreaming

Take Heart

Your Soul Is Precious

Little One

My Vision Fades

As Once Again

Your Soul Will Soar

Clasped In the Hands

Of The Eternal Spirit

Of Our Lands

    I truly didn’t know Aboriginal culture had any philosophies and sayings. How ignorant of me.

    Great poem, and saying, Ian. I really know nothing of our originals here.

      Thanks for the comment Noeleen , glad you enjoyed that poem, it was one of the first I wrote after returning from a tribal visit to Oodnadatta back in 2007, think its been published in a few newspapers since.

    You are quite the versatile one with photos, history, nature and your writing…well, really do not have the words to describe how wonderfully written the above piece is. Very well done and I will, for sure, visit your site again and thank you for visiting my own.

    About Aboriginal people that I feel sorry for them but it is hard to know how much is truth in their says which is unreasonable living in desert.
    I has post in past about a little girl has sick that because from she get from her Grand father.
    They needed to helps badly thought every countries has problems for their Aboriginal peoples.
    I have a book “Where strange paths go down ” by A.M DUNCAN-KEMP 1964.they have Aboriginal words and their meaning.My ex hubby was very good reader that why so many books are old.
    Great post!

      Thanks Michiko for your comment , I like our aborigines a lot and their way of life and understanding of life and nature is so beautiful
      I will check out that book you mentioned , aborigines have so much simple appreciation of life that never changes , but to many people
      who do not understand them their ways appear weird , but they are a people full of wisdom
      Cheers Princess Michiko

    Thanks for sharing those peaceful thoughtful words Aussie with the world in so much trouble a little light shining is surely sweet liberty. Glory to God the father of true freedom in whom all wisdom comes the free will to fight the good fight of faith to run the race with endurance in all walks of life.
    So free, so simplistic the native way then even admidst every day challenges faced with a certain fortitude. So much to try understanding the senseless oppression, suffering at hand of greed I guess. Prayer for everlasting love, joy hope and peace to all God’s precious creation everywhere. in his grace… the Spirit and the bride say soon come ~ Revelation 22 17, 20, 21

      Thank you for your beautiful in depth comment on my post and your insightful responce
      I have a great respect for all indiginous peoples around the world as they are the first peoples
      who were given the trust and care of this land we call earth , we that follow do not posses the wisdom they were entrusted with
      We are ignorant of the basics of humanity and the environment , our ears are deaf and our eyes are blind to that which is plainly obvious
      The work and beauty of the Universal creator

    Wow! this is beautiful Ian, so heartfelt, as we touch this Earth to blend with nature.. The Aboriginal People have at their roots never fogotten that connection, even though the younger generations like many Native American Indigenous people have strayed from their path, Their heart and Soul knows we are here to share the journey with all of Nature and her elements..
    We have forgotten those old ways, When we could commune with natures heart-beat and be as one, Knowing that all is provided, with respect for the animals as they lay down their own lives in order to provide..

    I recently Read a Beautiful book entitled Mutant Message Down Under, by Marlo Morgan, a very powerful book with a powerful message which shows How the Aboriginals still communicate telepathically and how they send out their thoughts to the animal kingdom when they walk across deserts, how they find water, and take only that which they require always being careful to leave some behind when gathering roots, .. It holds a profound message for Mankind.. and I totally respect the Aboriginal people and their elders who now also know that the time for change and mankinds ways has to alter..

    I read this poem over and over, and it makes my heart glad that many are waking up from slumbers But Mother Nature will give us a further wake up call.. and Mans material world is about to take a hammering..
    Loved this one Emu .. 🙂 😀

      Hi Sue , its great when someone reads the words that are actually written and can understand where they are coming from
      Many people do not understand or appreciate the fact that all indiginous peoples are the original caretakers of this earth
      Their wisdom and comprehension far surpasses what we as the hybrids of the original inhabitants do not seem to realize
      Life is a learning curve in our spiritual evolvement and if we only appreciate the wisdom and custom of the earlier beings
      We would pass through life with ease into the worlds of spiritual peace and communal harmony
      Cheers Sue
