Liyan is an invisible relationship feeling
of how Country reaches out. 
A subtle shift breaks open consciousness,
letting us hear her call.
The earth, the surrounding sea
is a mother embracing our dreams.
Does not the child who turns away from her 
shrink her own soul link with the Self?

The intrusive industrial drill and dig
damages mutual life-giving
that people Indigenous to Country
intuitively discern.

The Spirit never dies 

but our co-creation 

of the features of the land, 

of the old song-line is put in peril 

with unfettered development 

let loose to destroy
our umbilical bond.

Politicians warn protesters
of breaking the law, of breaching safety
But a greater LAW broken heralds
unseen consequences.

we will know when next
Country calls.
