Dawn on Mount Manaia

                   Only inspired mortals can feel the stimuli
            synonymously woven within the indigenous people
                      who for centuries dwell in this place.
                         The ‘Aotearoa Northland Maori’
                          Relating verbal legends of old
                     complementing one’s majestic stance
                            in the wilderness, a place 
         the ancient Gods of Olympus would welcome as home.
                 Here! From where one stands a perception
                   one of understanding yet in awe of you. 
                                        ‘Manaia’ 
                             Guardian of ‘Taurikura bay’
                    With your phantom shroud intimidating 
     the serene waters of the Pacific Ocean lying dormant below.
             Mortified your crag laden face appearing to cry out
                     for assistance to the wayward breeze,
          that it may hasten the removal of the ghostly grey veil,
              compounded precariously within your stony crown, 
   only then licence to permit the radiance of the brand new day to 
                     cast out the lingering nocturnal shadows, 
                           exposing all that surrounds your
                                  ‘Monolithic presence’

    Hi Harry I have always had a love for the indigenous people all over the world. I jave played the blues with many maori People, and the indigenous people here in Australia. I can truly relate to them. This is a great poem, my friend, and much deserves to flow to the top A7 from me....peter
