When Laws Collide, Mägaya Peace In Yolngu or Yolŋu Australia (Memory Exercises)
one of the first words we learn
a woman in Yirrkala tells
a legal term meaning the state of peace
achieved when laws are in place
If you've ever been down to a lake
or the sea in the morning
it's perfectly flat
that's " mägaya mäwaya "
Law creates that peace
you are protected
everything is "ŋoy-dharraḏa"
at peace calm
and burrmiḏi peaceful
or "mutitj" calm and peaceful
"beḻaŋ" calm and quiet
But when two systems of law
operate in one community
tranquility is not
the new conflicts
with law and order
that's been there
for 40,000 years

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
