Dance Partner

Friendly face orchid

Move this way and that in tune

To the fickle breeze

Windy road leads high

Slowing each turn that unfolds

An architect’s dream

Take a Bow

Tilting lavender

Curtsy down when high winds blow

Perfuming the air


Oh! I’ve disturbed you!

Your first bath after the drought

Bird in a puddle

Slapped in the face by

African tulip flower

God’s tap on the head


Here in upcountry

Where drizzling and cold breeze dwells

It is still summer

Lullaby rainfall

Awaken to renewed Earth

Bountiful country

Where Our Hair Grows Long

Ha‘ikū, you love me

With rainforest and fruit tree

You sow, and we reap

Daily Joy

Upcountry’s blessing

The birds declare it freely

Cool, fresh, fragrant air!


Fleeting world

In the far distance

The sun rising


Roosters awake grace

Lilikoi draped golden lace

Sweet rain on my face

Wonderful Place

Things that are wonders

Like local kine foods and things

Simply upcountry

Seasons on Maui (excerpt)

Purple fragrance

Kula spring cotton candy

Jacaranda trees

Bird’s song

A bird’s song

Clearing the summer sky

Streets become tranquil


Good Morning Mama

Birds are tweeting and squawking

Hello Blankey, my pal

So warm, so cozy
