Ka’ena Point

There is a place.
A wide sweep of clean sand.
The sounds of breakers rolling over rocky reefs.
Backed by cliffs of verdant green.
Where the sun sets slowly into the ocean
in the direction of Kauai.

When I could, I went back often
to try and capture the special aura of that moment
as the sun, a fiery orb,
fleshed the sky and clouds with color.
