Volcanic Reaches Of Hawaii

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Mountains climb three miles high
To tower over beaches.
Silver mist encircles trees
Beside volcanic reaches.
Velvet cliffs with water falls
The low valley beseeches.

The Kilauea Volcano
With molten lava oozes.
Like a set of leaky pipes
All things in its path loses.
Hawaii, the Big Island,
Grows fatter and amuses.

Hawaiian Islands
Sentinel over the bay
Stands Diamond Head's silhouette.
Waikiki's white, sun-drenched sands
Gives holiday hordes a set.
Pineapple and sugar cane
Are Hawaii's legend met.
