3. Spirit of the Dream Time



Through the sky

the air redolent with the aroma of roses

This is the dream

Unhayah ya batu
Sinu Lavat meegish
albi albi senahma
Ya buta ashiman
Uv lem ya batu
Uv lem ya batu
Unhayah

Sishima byat nya
Legush shim ut -
Uv lem ya batu




Byamar lesh ka
Syamar besh la
Rrr Strala
Sss Sss Sss

Thus repeat the ritual
saying that stone
beneath stone
and again
beneath stone
sleeps noiseless
but minute crackling
as ice slips effortlessly
through veins mineral vegetal stone beneath stone
