Maori Language Week...

 'Were we to exchange
Even language learning.
Then like brethren
The people of the world
Would be bound by affection.'

A waka poem written by Emperor Meiji .. that I came across in The Meiji Jingu Temple in Japan.


  1. This is beautiful Joan...I hope you don't mind if I share it too?

    "...all the different shades of peace..." and a word that sounds like a moth hovering...Oh lovely....

    Thanks for sharing...

    Have a lovely week.

  2. What a lovely video. Thank you Joan - such lovely ways of sharing favourite words.

  3. If all of us would think about the words we use and choose our words more selectively, it would do much towards realizing our Oneness. Lovely video. Lovely idea.
