Yesterday's Earth Quake

A  L  O  H  A !

I felt it. 
"That's an earthquake" says I,
playing with a certain kitty 
on the floor 
of my 35th floor apartment
 here in Waikiki 

I felt it.

From the 5.5 

that shook my Kona coffee shack

 in the winter of '88

(that was a dance!)

to the one a few years ago

that was strong enough

 to feel 

on our cement/steel boat (!)

and to cut the electricity 

here on Oahu 

all one Sunday,

I am an old hand 

at Hawaii earthquakes.

Friday, June 21, 2013,

  at 12:04 a.m. local time,


was noted by authorities.

Preliminary magnitude call was  4.0, 
but it was later scored a 4.5 by the USGS.
The epicenter (USGS) as follows:
 52 mi ENE of Kāneʻohe, which is

35 floors down,
13 miles, and 30 minutes drive
 from here

over the Ko`olau Mountains

via Pali Highway, 

52 mile boat ride,
then deep in the sea.

I felt it :)

Lights are on, 
air is conditioned, 
food is cooking;

wishing YOU the same :)
