They said,
why would you want
to move to an island,
won’t you get tired
of not having
more space?

But what they
don’t know is that
there is a world
of secrets
within each stone;
a million stories
told through earth’s
a new sky-star
every hewn eve;
and a person
could spend
their entire life
the truth in a
bird’s breath,
and learn what
they need
to be complete.

And as reconciliation
of day called me
open with
rain’s clarity,
light’s majesty,
green’s verity
kauai’s mystery-
I know a million
worlds of secrets
within my island
of self,
and see:

I will have
the space
I need.
