Genie In a Bottle:
The first wish is one of desire
gold & silver leaf a crown to inspire
a sense of pride, a sense of mana
this gift is for you my greatest lover.
Secondly, I say unto thee
grant me a necklace of emeralds, diamonds
opals & beads
greenstone tiki a pounamu gem,
black & purple paua pearls,
Aotearoa finest none other than them.
My third and final wish; is to be together
as a bird is to a feather
like two dove’s flying on high for ever
never to part, no never.
