 A short video which inspired the following poem.  Caution:  Turn down your volume before playing the video.  The ocean is loud.

Life is Like White Powder

Waves swell, roll and
     dissolve into
          white powder


sometimes like
     gentle
          white powder
sprinkled onto babies'
               bottoms

               and

sometimes like
     bitter
          sea salt
thrown onto our
               faces.

I love paradise and I miss my family and studio . . . Life is like White Powder.

Aloha!
Fannie
