Day 18 NaPoWriMo. We haven’t had romance since our day two post. Today’s fateful, romantic meeting happened in Bali, Indonesia. Anni, American, and Mel, Balinese, fell in love. It took years of visits before Anni and Mel decided to trust that love conquers all even across cultures and oceans. Anni and Mel married, had two sons, and started a Bali, nature inspired jewelry business – AnniMaliki.com. Enjoy the poem.
Bali to All
Bali to many means Yoga
to others an island of beaches
still others Bali means Hindu temples,
sculptural temples lifting toward skys
as blue as the waters.
Waters filled with coral reefs
waters a diver’s paradise,
a paradise called Bali
a paradise where love and unity
grow plenty as the Rainbow Eucalyptus.
I haven’t been to Bali but took this photo of Rainbow Eucalypus on Maui. -Dawn
