Me: We miss the sound of the roaring Pacific.
.. The beach is a fifteen-minute drive.
Another: No heat! Now 51 degrees in the house.
....... . A blizzard outside. Will I survive?
Me: The screen door sticks.
... Really a poor design!
Another: Thank God, there is a bridge overhead.
....... . At least I am partially dry.
Me: Chicken again!
... Aren’t there other options.
Another: Wow! I found this half eaten chicken leg
....... . in the garbage.
....... . Is it safe to eat? I am so hungry.
Me: Another headache!
... Will they ever stop.
Another: Goodbye, My Love. I can no longer fight
....... . the good fight.
....... . The cancer wins.
....... . I know I will join my Creator tonight.
....... . Oh, to have had more time with you!
We sometimes bemoan
... lacking perspective.
... we can be.
Comment: None needed.
The Magnificent Mystery
We breathe in and out
... sometimes wondering about existence.
Many seldom question
... assuming they have the answers.
But some ask
... while marveling at this majestic gift
... called “Life,”
“Why is I, me?”
“Why do I tear
... when my heart is touched?”
“How do you explain love?”
Or, perhaps should we just live it?
“Where do thoughts start
... and end?”
“What does eternity
... and infinity really mean?”
Surely, there must be an end.
... yet to be answered.
... I simply breathe in and out.
Comments: You interpret.

Steps to Honolua Beach
"The silvery hairs, fleshy leaves, and low-growing rosette form of the Haleakala silversword allow it to survive in hot, dry climates of the cinder slopes of the crater. Silverswords live between 3 and 90 years or more. They flower once, sending up a spectacular flowering stalk, and then die soon afterward, scattering drying seeds to the wind."
