Believe it or not (we can barely believe it…), the former half of bridge year has already come and gone, leaving behind memories, lessons, and emotions that have marked and moved us in our new home away from home. On a night in midcourse, under the southern constellations and ocean breeze, we decided to look back on these times through the lens of a light poetry activity. It went as follows:
Each of the 8 baby dragons, along with our instructors Chrissy and Claire, wrote one of the anonymous poetry morsels that are posted below. Even though you likely won’t understand the context of the poems, we hope you enjoy glimpsing the core essence of a handful of our most defining moments in Indonesia so far!
Secrets, frustrations, momentary sisterhood igniting fires
Di sini duduk, impeccably traced lips
Independence: family meals to coffee alone
Kissing waves / smokey nerves / watery moon
Impermanence of life; shivered, “when, God?”
Excitement and dread ahead. Keluargaku arrived
Such urgency / almost younger / loneliness again
Midnight wind, cheeks swollen with laughter
Bzzzz. Keke… JUMP. She’s crying?! Together!
The way to Lebron James: GOAT
