|View from my front courtyard|
In spite of my efforts to remain focused
because I really don’t want to miss
any portion of my life, I leap
into a future unknown except in wishes,
where fancy magnifies delight,
or perhaps minimizes it.
Won’t know the truth of this until
because we never really know
about the days to come,
though we always chase the finer ones.
Do I waste this moment?
My apologies to the gods
Rainbows, ocean breezes, luscious fruits,
water falls, volcanoes like the moon, heavenly music
softly strummed, or beaten by a drum,
fish of colors (I’ve) never seen, and people
of Aloha smiling at me...
Sorry, I’m not really with you now,
and tomorrow we may not be together,
I’ll be busy having fun.
I see only imagination's child,
how right it will be.
But I’m no prophet.
Don’t know nature’s way.
So I wait. I trust.
Inevitably, later will unravel

I borrowed some of the words from the song, 'Anticipation' by Carley Simon. That's all I'm about right now as I prepare to go to Hawaii tomorrow - a vacation dream. I may not be posting very often if at all. I'll be missing you. Aloha!
