Still catching up because of the site being screwed up.

The word was

forevermore

Use it in a piece of writing or to inspire a piece of writing and then post it on the Bamboo Shoots page.

Hawai'i Sonnet 95 (Aloha 'Oe)

Two lovers who have found someone to love
will understand how the beauty of Kane’ohe Bay,
sparkling under the windward sun, perfect
undertone of jeweled notes, melody dancing
breezes here about the Pali, celebrate you.

I look back, behold your embrace so tight, drawing you together
so there is less space between you than the faintest breath.

I have seen love, but none so strong as this, you so desiring
each other that you would be transformed
from two souls into one.

And now, riding home in meditation on this wonder I’ve witnessed,
I have come to sing Aloha ‘Oe for you, you who know
in this life, and even as your spirits travel on,
that you are and will be one with each other forevermore.
