Hawai'i Sonnet 94 (of air)

Catching up because the site was screwed up for a couple days and wouldn't allow posting. The word for Thursday 10.17.19 was

love

Use it in a piece of writing, or to inspire a piece, and then post what you come up with on the Bamboo Shoots page.

Mine for that day was this one.

Hawai'i Sonnet 95 (of air)

I’ve always been so much of us in another day, I see
now how I only saw directly into darkness,
stared myself into withdrawing from an us, we two,
me one, stumbled into here where there is no light.

I came here all on my own, to live alone swaying in a hollow cave,
humming empty echoes, but for ages I’ve thought,
oh how I’ve thought of you, a skin-wrinkled us,
together forever, such sunny visions, then too
of all the uneasy choices I made, me a fool to come to this,
and I will

fully blame me, still love you in so many winter songs,
tell how you will never break me from a long float
on ancient air, I know, I know, but even then, I will
write the music and the words that help me breathe.
