beach of black lava
stones wave smoothed and glistening
listen to whale song

There’s a song called “The Whale” written by my dear friend Terry Fielding, a number 1 hit here in Australia back in 1972… I’ll see if I can find and send to you.

I’d like that, thank you!
I’ve sent the link, hope it went through for you, if not I’ll try again, at 66 I’m new to this digital world. ..
smashing little poem and great images ~ maybe not a true haiku? But lovely.
I’m curious as to why it is not a true haiku? I double checked the syllable count in second line and it was 7, the others 5. Is it the subject matter? Anyway, I always appreciate suggestions or corrections!
I was just there. It’s beautiful and lush. Sweet.
We head there again in March. So beautiful.
I still remember Maui in September for my 20th or was it 25th wedding anniversary…
I actually saw petroglyphs on some private property. At one time the owner kept up hand rails. But do to folks not being nice the new sign was more or less explore at your own risk. And remember that you were on private land. We didn’t go far. But it was a wonderful week.
