Cultural Heritage Nurtured - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

quality not quantity
wisdom not trivia

take time
break
new ground

for planting

to plant
acorns
wisdom

budding
enlightenment

thriving into
generations
forthcoming

growing into
forest giant
kauri or

totara
varieties in
Aoteaora

water
seedlings
well

a great forest
is grown
over generations

centuries
millennia
life

is far
to short
to make

a joe
of
yourself

generations lost
are not soon
not easily recovered
