BH.net: new writing, from Hawaii to Sicily

1. It may be morning at your desk once again, but perhaps you would like to spend a small part of it on Kauai's North Shore? Garrett Haake will take you....
Liquid light
appears just past five,
An hour I would groan to see back home

Like honey,
it drips slowly through the blinds
into the bedroom

2. Or, maybe something more Mediterranean will suit your taste. Luckily, Rosemary A. Gaynor has just what you need: a flowing account of charting through Sicilian towns at the speed of laughs, love & mispronounced Italian.
We think it is October 28; that's the date we put in the guest book at the Norman castle this morning. It is Saturday, though. We know this for sure, because tomorrow the cardinal comes to town, and the cardinal only comes on Sundays.

I don't actually care about the date, I'm just along for the ride. As my mother, my father, my sister, and my brother-in-law Lui rework our itinerary for the third time that day, I look out the car window. After twenty-one years of living in the States, I am back in Italy again with my parents. I don't care where we go or what we see. It is enough to be here with them.
