  1. Te Marama by Kelly Joseph

    Tonight I can’t sleep.
    Te Marama
    floods my room
    with silvery light.
    Outside, the moana swells
    high upon the shore
    – ngā tai a Kupe.

    Koro fished and planted
    by the phases of Te Marama.
    Koro told me that she is
    the tamaiti of Rangi,
    sibling of Te Rā and Ngā Whetū.
    Together they make
    a whānau of light.

    Koro always said, “Titiro whakatau! Look carefully!”
    In the atarau, I remember him.

    Te Marama – new, waxing, full, waning, new again.
    Endlessly crossing the sky.
