Greeting from Saipan (Petrarchan Sonnet)

October 26, 2009

Some days I wake and do not greet the sun,
For not a sound from it rings out to me.
Because no fun exists here where I see,
Some days I wake… realize that life’s no fun.
I stare into the sky when day is done –
My head, so dense, falls down so emptily.
The world stands motionless save for the sea.
This Banzai Cliff says, ‘fore things get undone,
“Embrace this island to enjoy your life.
Embrace the nature of this lovely land.
Live on and on and past days of long strife.
So you may see the beauty in the sand.
So here upon this cliff that men have jumped,
Life shan’t make you so sad and much too stumped!”
