Honu (a poem; also know honu are the sea turtles around Hawaii)


turtles give up
brains for breath,
the stamina
to cruise for grass
like a sea-liner
underwater, clear
keeping it going
in unhurried style
there’s no room
for extra thoughts
and definitely
not troubles
the honu know
how to
live life right
