One foot rooted firmly in the North; outstretched and bound for decades, fed by frost, and birth and blood.

One foot extending deeply to the South; ablaze in Dreamtime remembering, hastening its growth.

Pure, white sanctity – the peaceful hue of home.

Gold-rimmed bowls – holding precious nourishment for my soul.

Wild, seeking locks – my essence, my medicine, my power, my prayer.

This is my incantation; a call to weave, to stretch and grow. Entwine two distant worlds, rooting home together, with this craft I cast my spell.
