“I am drawn to the story of Polynesia because it reveals so much about the issues and misconceptions that both inspire and haunt us to this day: the sheer courage that true exploration implies, the brilliance of human adaptation, the dark impact of conquest and colonialism. It reminds us, too, of the need always to be skeptical about the tenacious grip of academic orthodoxy. Knowledge is rarely completely divorced from power, and interpretation is too often an expression of convenience.”
~ Wade Davis in The Wayfinders.

rough

rain’s stopped
empty path
am walking
moon is alone

leaves drenched
night shining
feet wet
muddy smell still left

can hear breeze
can feel the stars
ground beneath feels
soul touches void

this rain,
this spirit
walks crossing
together forever

thousand kisses deep

I do not know any sweet words, nor I am a sweet talker of times
though I will let my actions speak for me more than my words
but there will be mornings I will leave you alone in your bed
only to return to lose myself a thousand kisses deep
