...children of earth and sky...

Light of Matariki stars

Light of Marama—the moon

Light of Ra—the sun

 

Light of worlds and galaxies

Reflect off us

Shine in us

 

That we may be light-sharers

Love-makers

Care-givers

Nga tamariki—children of earth and sky

 

Caring for our mother the earth

our father the sky

the atmosphere around us;

dreamers and scatterers of stars.

 

Light

Lightened

Weightless

Enlightened:

 

Let us be light.

Let us shine!
