The world is full of magical things 
patiently waiting for our wits
to grow sharper.

Tropical Traffic Emerald giants line the street, Iron horses inch along and compete
Palm trees sway in sun-kissed skies,
Mirrored on a windshield, *sigh*
Contrasts dance, a curious scene,
Paradise glimpsed, on metal sheen.
But wait, a uku
lele's tune,
Spills from a truck, a joyful croon!
 Paradise is still there, waiting
beyond the traffic jam.

Today or any day 
that phone may ring 
and bring good news.

The kapok tree, Ceiba pentandra,
or silk-cotton tree,
grows up to 200 feet tall,
 10 feet across at the trunk!

A kind heart is a beautiful
thing to share, but
don't forget to extend
those amazing traits to yourself.
You are worthy of your
own love and care.
Morgan Richard Olivier

Love You,

Hawaiian Honeycreepers are
a group of small birds endemic
to Hawaiʻi. They are members
of the finch family Fringillidae,
closely related to the
rosefinches, but many species
have evolved features unlike
those present in any other finch.
