Silversword Shadow

Silversword Shadow

On Maui, Hawaiian Islands.

On the slopes of the Haleakala volcano crater.

From Silverswords, by Juliet S. Kono:

“Upon this one place
on Earth,
from the ancient
lava rivers,
silverswords rise,
into starbursts
by the sun.
Like love, sometimes,
they die
at their first
and rare flowering.”
