Watching Honolulu Skies

A  L  O  H  A !
I have lived in Hawaii
almost 30 years.
and  am still infatuated
with Palm Trees,
every kind of palm.

By moonlight,
in dusk light, or
flashing the rays
of the sun;

Their finger fronds
finesse a hula
much older by far
than our own.

Palm Trees.

“Meaning and reality 
were not hidden 
somewhere behind things,
 they were in them, 
in all of them.”
                  Hermann Hesse

" For darkness restores
 what light cannot repair "
                           Joseph Brodsky

Thank You
for drifting by!

I do understand your infatuation with palms, they make great subjects to photograph against the sky. :)

there are plenty of palms around here (two in my yard) but it doesn't stay always pleasant as it does in Hawaii.

I'm with you... palms in any setting, but especially in the tropics, are wonderful. They make a very relaxing sound when the wind blows through them!

Magical sky colours in the last two photos. And the palms always seem to suggest a tropical paradise.

Lovely skies. The colors in the last picture are magnificent. I like palm trees, but not as much as you do... Glad you are in a place with lots of them!

Awesome! I visited Maui once and felt like I had been there before. It is so wonderful that you have lived in Hawaii for 30 years! Paradise to me!
