Day 912: Hopoe

Hiiaka saw her dancing in the distance
Hopoe, moving over the land like water over itself
moving like mist
moving like she was meant to
she took her as her favorite
her lover
covered her body in sacred flowers of different colors
planted her a forrrest of rumbling lehua trees
each blossom a promise to return
to move within her dance again

hiiaka saw her moving over the land from a distance
and new she was in love
that there was something to be held in that body
she turned hopoe into a home she could return to
and promise herself
something about this screams love
and yet

they cannot see
they are too blind
