Life’s Rhythm

The swells of earth,
Gasping for breeze,
Sea floor rising a league
From crust’s foundation,
Uplifting, Hawaiian islands nurtured…

A beacon,
Kamehameha sonnets,
Sweet sounds of future…
Kohola, the humpback whales…


Thousands of miles,
Amplifying tropical murmurs,
Majestic creatures sensing,
Alaskan waters,
Departure’s point…


Yet graceful,
They come,
They come each year,
Perfect pendulum,


Procreation of another soul,
Joyously frolicking,
Just repeating,
And honoring,
Exquisite synchronicity,

And the perfection of…

Life’s rhythm,

Life’s glorious,
Beautifully sweet,

Having served two tours of duty in Hawaii while in the US Navy, I was always amazed by these majestic creatures. Their cycle of life seems beautiful and pure… like falling in love with that special someone… over and over again.
