sandcastles

monday, Ko Olina






















maggie and millie and molly and may
went down to the beach(to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,and

millie befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;

and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and

may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.

for whatever we lose(like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea.

You are a sorceress who has stolen bits of the blue Hawaiian ocean and hidden them away in your little girl's eyes ...

Lovely, lovely, lovely.

Many happy memories!
