Mothers Country, 2016
A cinematic poem 1:06
Mothers Country was developed as part of Arts House’s program Time Place Space:NOMAD in Wotjobaluk Country of the Wergeia Language Group in December 2016.
I hear passed the wind,
To the voice of my mother, her mother, and her mother...
I see her hair a lions mane
In the dry, golden grasses, pushed and pulled
I hear the leaves chatting to the boughs
And the shining water
In tango with the sun rays and cloud
The flocking black swans and water fowl
The landscape with precise, geometric form
Haybales stacked three high
Obsevant fields and a violet mountain
Big sky, she roars.
My mothers roar comes from here.
A response to a workshop by Sarah Rodigari #TPS16 Day 2
