K, Kauai Mana

K, Kauai Mana

A2Z-BADGE-0002015-LifeisGood-230_zps660c38a0

Twisted trunks frown over

colliding curls of foam

 

This is Kauai Mana

 

Ask for an invitation

and she envelopes you

 

wraps you inside and out

Oils of fronds, seeds, fish

 

Mahalo Kauai Kuru

 

Or she expels you

swallows you in red dirt folds

 

then spits you, keeping only

the oils useful for invited guests

  1. What a beautiful photo! That’s the prettiest K (M?) I’ve seen on the A to Z Challenge.
