kate5kiwis: five. perfect. days.

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

five. perfect. days.


a handful of time
together

ain't no other like my bruvva
a summer decade half a globe away
this endless week
an elegant sufficiency
kids toppling you over
etching the sounds of laughter
our unbelieveably happy ever afters
together
divulging hearts and dreams
poirate stories in the tent
waves crashing
sunshine splashing
my beautiful sister chorusing
it's weezer!
matchsticks propping our candlelit eyelids
all together in real time
recalling childhood jokes
lump in my throat
wishing for the world to stop turning
a million photos burning
jaffas on beaches
midnight speeches
little words of sage advice
a wink, a smile
another scenic drive
a plane ride
the globe is turning
turning
remembering
choking au revoir
squeezing
wishing
dreaming
clinging to our
déjà vu
together
