Sing!

Day 18 – National Poetry Month

The challenge is to write a poem that begins and ends with the same word. I was inspired by the Maori love song that was was sung in the parliamentary chamber when the New Zealand legislature passed a bill redefining marriage to include marriage between gay couples.

A link to the YouTube video appears below my poem.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

sing–I beckon you

with open arms

open your heart

and your mouth

defend love

affirm it

shout it to the sky

and let the heavens ring

as you sing

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
