Bitja (Fire) by Moorina Bonini

Caring for my Country

Breathing

Country pulses and the blood in my veins pulse in response

I walked outside and I put my feet into the sand

Dirt

Water

Country I covered my feet with Country one handful after another

and buried myself in the space

Where I have always belonged.

Bitja(Fire) revitalises, and through the smoke and charcoal

Country heals.

Listen.
