so too the sunrise
with clarity and promise
of who you will rise to be

so too the breaking night
who knows dance and feast 
and then resting 

so too the moon
who sees all those standing
at the edge of journey

the moth lifting to light
the glistening nectar of now
the current drifting on

so too us hands held
ready to take the first step
into glory glowing dawn

'so too the sunrise' features in Rise! Voices and Hands! — a public artwork activation that honours, shares and celebrates the languages, cultures and voices of First Nations poets as part of Poetry Month 2023.
