mauka – May 21

5.21.2015

virgin forests look

more primitive

than imagined

 

underbrush, decaying

old lives, vibrant new

answering only

 

to the push of life

within them, feral

anything.

 

the beast looks

steadily into our

eyes

 

up here everything

is king of its own

domain.

VOG – May 20

5.20.2105

I’ve been up

for two hours

sitting in my pajamas

with a bowl of cheerios

in my hand

and a blank stare.

 

there must be

something

in the air.

shallow joy – May 18

5.18.2015

a shower, a glass of

wine and a great

dinner.

 

what more could you ask?

 

Andy Griffith on

channel four.

pots of gold – May 19

5.19.2015

fine mist sprays

a turn of head and

the arc of sky opens

rainbow

 

above the trees

down into laval scrub

it sings of pots of

gold.

a day with her – May 17

5.17.2015

a day with her,

no agenda,

is joy,

comfort,

serenity.

 

mahalo, breath of life.

lanai cats – May 16

5.16.2015

I move slowly

so as to not scare

a move.

 

last week they

brawled, yowled

careened

in a death match

 

today with soft breezes

and bird songs above

they loll

within feet of

each other

 

one a hind leg

lifted overhead

for carefree cleaning

the other rolling

onto his back in the sun

legs akimbo.

 

clearly settlement

has been reached.

driving in the car – May 14

5.14.2015

driving in the car

climate slip by,

rain forest, desert,

ranchland, town

 

the island’s variety

moves within

moments

 

while our bodies

float between

eras.
