We winged our way to Hawaii…

We winged our way
to Hawaii…

by means of jet-powered flights,
to escape Michigan’s wintry cold,
seeking sun, sand, and surf,
wondrous warmth, balmy winds,
miraculous flora and fauna,
soothing sights and sounds,
of dreamily tropical delights…
exotic aromas, secretive smells,
pleasing, pleasant,
taunting and tempting
fine fragrances of myriad blossoms…

Hawai1

We landed at Kona…
to experience Hawaiian hospitality…
the joys, challenges, and memorable adventures
of a shared family vacation…
to sample tasty treats and liquid libations
of the local cuisine…
and to leave temporary footprints
in soft sands…on beautiful beaches…
until washed away once again
by blue waters with perpetually rolling
and rhythmically undulating waves…
of the vast Pacific Ocean…
resulting in dramatic effects
of crashing surf…
dashing and splashing
on massive volcanic rocks
along coast and shore.

Footprints in the sand
are symbolic of our human existence…
which is temporal at best…
with the passage of time
fast and fleeting…
So, in order to leave
a lasting impression
our daily deeds done
must be purposeful, positive,
principled, and passionately peaceful…

Hawai2-Taube
constructive, kind, and caring…
not dreary and dreadful…
not hate-filled, not harmful…
not turbulent and troublesome…
not malicious, not violent and vicious…
not deadly dangerous, not destructive…
and, therefore,
not self-defeating!
