Hawaii’s Gift (Or, It’s Not Boycotting if Nobody Wants You)

Published March 17, 2017 by kdorholt

Hawaii has been in the news quite a bit lately which has prompted me to write this poem. I’ve tried to make it reminiscent of the sea and waves–their form, motion, and reliance on continuity.

the waves . . . roll in
and caress
the shore . . .` warmed by
the heat of
the sun’s shining . . . brightens
and bequeaths
the skiest blue . . . radiated
so pure
in babies’ eyes . . . give back
the joy of
this one day . . . dances into
it’s own end
this one night . . . echoes
the language of
lovers’ laughter . . . returns
to the sea
life’s source . . . tumbled in
a truly tropical
five senses . . . of beauty
present here . . . our gift
of always
the waves roll in
