Emma Kruse Vaai

Mangroves are beautiful

in their quietness

in their stillness

in their eeriness

in their depth


Underneath those gnarled leafy trees

and clay soft earth

lies creation itself

reaching back to the void

to origin itself


In the mangrove

your voice echoes


as if it were not your own

even though it is

or perhaps not
