  1. They were innocence
    All naivety and guileless charm
    They knew no better life
    Had no remembrance
    Of anything that wasn’t this.
    The isle held their secrets,
    Childhood games
    of survival
    A life imperfect
    With no compare.
    Here they’d grown
    Not hiding from each other
    No knowledge, no shame
    No needing to atone
    Just a natural order.
    The surf as much their home
    As their shore-bound shelter
    The birds their playmates,
    The fish caught in water’s foam
    Their sustenance
    Found in one another.

  2. Waves gushed into the unknown
    Known selves trudged forward into the uncertain
    Sandy shores slurred with rushing, salty waves
    Waving back to life’s lonely shores
    Sure to find an everlasting place
    Placed hands together and prayed
    Prayers united for a solemn space
