Sometimes it is the simplest gestures that mean so much.
Such a simple thing, really
A gift, impromptu and unprompted
Likely found ripe and ready as she worked,
an unselfconscious thought in presentation.
But a sign, for me, of how far I’d come
A symbol of embedment in a culture, an acceptance.
Me, slipping into nuance
and finally knowing the right gesture
I savored the flesh, melted light silk on my tongue.
I sipped the juice, a smack of brisk breeze, on ice.
The sweat of the glass slipping on my fingertips
like remnants of a monsoon day.
I drank it up
I drank it in.
And laughed a little at my dancing heart
it’s only a coconut. A coconut’s
all it is.
but by the moments that take our breath away.”
