December 4, 2019

an evening with friends
fills me with the greatest joy
crows upon the breeze

Waking in Kona, the surf singing to me 

My mind playing Iz*

A song I know

But whose name

Escapes me

Gentle and peaceful

Bringing me rest

And contentment

*If you aren’t familiar with the musician Iz, he was Israel Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole. Learn more about him here. He’s long been high in my list of favorite musicians. 

An Early Morning Haiku

Yes, I am awake

And the birds sing with vigor

Dawn has not yet come

I’m amazed at the number of birds singing right now. Well, I think one of the loudest sounds is an insect, but I digress.  It’s quite boisterous. Oddly, as daylight comes their sounds will quiet. Perhaps just supplanted by human noise. Perhaps.
