    Black Beach Day

    Now we wake

    Raise our hands above our heads

    And stretch


    We fold the best of ourselves

    Into the trunk of a car

    And drive into the sun


    We lay our children

    To the dirt

    And they build us a castle


    Cast our elders to the sea

    And they bring back

    A swordfish


    Build a fire

    To burn our blessings

    Share a meal

    And share a story


    We have built a new life

    At the edge of the ocean

    Not because we were forced

    But because we are able


    And sleep beneath a darkness

    Salted with stars


    The sun rises as promised

    And we all make it

    And nobody is surprised
