The call punches the air

Announces its presence with authority

Challenging, forcefully saying I’m here

I have power


But its also a calling out



She raises the conch to her lips again

Transforms gentle breath

Into clarion cries


Letting the notes linger and fade


Waiting for a distant response

Or simply waving to sister islands

To the north and south

Thrust like a spear across timeless miles

To echo in those places

That have heard its song
