Goddess Xanthorrhoea

Her voluptuous body varies in shapes and sizes
In all odd positions as if dancing
Showing off her confidence narcissistically
Demanding admiration for she is a minority
A well hardy woman
A true reflection upon Mother Nature
Unabashed of her image, showing no sign of weakness
Her sisters in the mallee all thin and slightly uniformed
Bare no match towards the curviest sister
Sinisterly attracting insects with her huge stigma
Sustaining many with her elixir
Never asking for much in return
Just a little something now and then
Living on very little rewards compared to her contributions
This is why Grass Trees for me symbolize femininity

Artist's Description

Xanthorrhoea is a species of plant called Grass Trees. Native to my area these plants are perhaps the most drought tolerant plants in the world. Quite brilliant really. This was written in dedication to my mother and all the women in my life and in the past who work so hard, for little reward.
