song of the transplant growing roots

They are not so unfathomable
days like this one
when I float on its surface

daylight hours laid out before me
I know already the dance
sunlight on fern fronds & ohia sway
a day like this slips on like a soft sweater

my gratitude hums along with the mele
once I know the words
my voice will join in too
blend with the apapane song

my song like the plant from Kahiki
now in the hapu’u of Kilauea
