Not A BIT Tamed

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune,
I myself am good fortune;
henceforth I whimper no more,
postpone no more, need nothing.
Strong and content,
I travel the open road.
     Walt Whitman

Simply shine your light on
the road ahead, and you are
helping others to see
their way out of darkness.
Katrina Mayer

Small lights have a way of
being seen in a dark world.
Neal A. Maxwell


Taste of home, soul's delight, Breadfruit bearing culture's light.
Green and round of leafy crown, Breadfruit hangs, treasure found! South Pacific's ancient friend, A bond that stretches, without end.
Connections bloom, with every bite, Ages shared in pure delight. 

More than body it sustains,
Cultures are woven in its veins.
Symbol stitched, with loving hand, Of breadfruit's bounty, ancient and grand.
Leaves of grace, quilter's pride,
Breadfruit's spirit Pacific wide.
Cloudia Charters

I too am not a bit tamed,
I too am untranslatable,
I sound my barbaric yawp
over the roofs of the world.
Walt Whitman
