Island Style Ka Iwi Coastline

The People of Hawaii 

have fought to preserve

 the Ka Iwi Coastline

of East Oahu.

Feels like driving
the edge of eternity.

Magnificent churning waters, foaming, leaping!
Coves, crevices, a fountaining Blow Hole.
President Obama came here as a boy.
Kamehameha the Great
landed his war canoes here
on his conquest of Oahu.

Ka Iwi means: "The Bones"
You can commune with the bones
of the island itself,
and perhaps discover
your own spine,
or even if you
possess one.

It is a vast space
that also feels intimate
and eternal
while very much
in the moment.

 from all over the world 
stop to admire
 Ka Iwi

On a clear day, 
you can see the isle of Moloka`i,
and sometimes even Lanai
as above.
Voyagers in sailing canoes
inhabited these islands.

It is a place
 for solitude,
for friends.
Humans are dwarfed,
as in Asian art.

" Here shall be

 eternal summer

 in the grateful heart. "

Celia Thaxter

Today you are in a special club:
you have seen Ka Iwi!
Thanks for visiting today!
                                      Warmly, cloudia

Nice view! Just got back from Kauai, it seems to me Oahu has more places to see.

We always pass by there when we decide to do our 'round da island drives every once in a blue moon. It is beautiful and so far away.
