A rocky, wavy buffet served out on the water today. Waiting on the whales, but their hiding, or sleeping, or swimming away. In the misty distance waits Diamond Head, looking out on us, unassuming. Take a dive in the Hawaii ocean.
March single file, up, up, up. Take the stairs two at a time, sweat beads run lines down your face. Get to the tunnel carved in rock, push past the crowds to break out, then up, up, up till you peak at the top, the trail's end. Survey the crater, lush, serene, barricaded against the city which spills between hills and mountains. Forget it all, turn to face the sea.
Fine rain falls onto the reflection pool, tiny ripples bouncing off each other, transient touch. Mist hangs on the mountains, shrouds peaks. A bell tolled out, reverberating purity, find peace in obscurity.
Five sea turtles bask, the evening sun glinting off their shelled backs. The sand glistening with each waves retreat. Like statues, the turtle guardians.
One cracks an eye, slow, peeks at those watching, pointing, then closes the eye again. Not concerned with human things, it's only desire to store sun fire deep under it's scale skin, bring it back underwater and heat its soul within.
What a paradise Where there is so many palm trees The sun getting brighter Sand feeling soft and warm Not too warm just perfect The sound of waves crashing Our bodies getting darker As we're lying on sand With the flowers falling from the trees Falling down towards us As we're under the tree with flowers falling You holding me With those arms around me My hands around you
the lushness of the land the ruggedness of the rocks pictures can capture everyone's view of perfection. but have you sat on a cheap beach chair, with sand in your toes and curly hair, across your sunburned face? subtly smiling at the distant crash of waves, or listening to the live music that sounds like the band "summer salt?"
lava lava beach club with cats wandering around the island just as your heart wanders around the lovely memories that you count one by one to taste their delicious ideas and finally, finally feel.
