Not to let it be forgotten, cease to remember
sacrifice that opened a way to convergence
of cross currents, riptide, leading to a separate
dimension, foreign land exile, turn of new life
through periodic windows, poetic revival curve
branched rejuvenation in warm rain, lush green
brush, exotic sounds and fruits, birds darting
perching in camouflage or mating colors
waves washing broad strands of sand
as turtles return, never forget, their birth site
to deposit a new generation, surrender of self
to role the cycle, multiply the possibilities.
