There's a facination with stringing words together in a way they wouldn't normally fall. For me, that's what makes poetry beautiful and words so powerful.
My response to a song written for me using the ylang-ylang flower and my love for the composer who is from Wai'anae, thus the references to Ka'ala and Kaiaulu wind of that area.
Feather rains fall like lyrics in his song
While dew perched upon the ylang ylang petals appear like a lover’s kiss
Quiet follows with the sun lowering its warmth onto Ka’ala
And the earth blends to heaven
Her lips part towards the sky in thirst
The ocean’s sighs braid the twilight into stars and moonlight
Each one like fresh water on her tongue
Each one like the Kaiaulu breeze soaked with their own sweet fragrance
in delight and in dawn
he finds her again and again,
Her scent unrestrained until desire gathers the whole of his song
