It is hard to believe

It seems so long ago


New Years

And now the travel home

Healing trade winds

Unfettered coastline



Canyons abound

Fond memories intertwine

in the vines of my consciousness

As the final clouds float by

My adventure near done

To have visited something so amazing

Its vibrant sunset fleeting

Gone is the moment

Born is the inspiration

Living in the present

Ever so aware

It is the gift of the future

Responsiveness in the air


It is time to head home today. Thank you Kauai for the inspiration and energy. This is a special place!
