While visiting my brother in Hawaii, I couldn’t resist a little haiku based on the beautiful island of Oahu.
wind-stippled sparkling silver
laps on silken sand
sailboards soar with wind-borne kites
breathtaking in flight
We visited the memorial at Pearl Harbor
beneath azure waves
eruptions of vermillion
cauldrons in the sky
We hiked to the sacred ruins of the queen’s summer palace through a bamboo forest.
ruins in the jungle
bamboo clatters in the breeze
Thanks for taking a poetic journey with me.
And this is what I arrived home to:
everywhere we roam
a precious world awaits us
where beauty abounds
NaNoWriMo, (or as my husband calls it, Ninny Rhino) is going well. I’m ahead of schedule, though that probably won’t last. To everyone who’s writing up a storm… keep going! To everyone else, take advantage of the month of light blogging, enjoy, and relax!
