Where is Here by Jillian Cassar

Here is a space

Tucked in the trees

Where water flows freely and pure

Children dance to the sounds of the wind

Truth follows us

The teachings of those who came before

Are passed down

Over and over

Colours change as years pass

Love flourishes and thrives

Sunlight dances on the water

Twisting and twirling

The sky paints

This space is shared

We use it to honour how

Cultures blend together

People come from far and wide

We gather and partake

A constant reminder

To give respect to the land
