Photos of Oahu, Hawaii
|Waikiki Beach at Sunset. Note all of the people watching|
as the sun goes down!
|Another Sunset View - one really cannot take|
too many photos of Waikiki sunsets.
|One of the beaches at Waikiki -- the one that|
we used for swimming. Very few people compared
to the touristy areas in downtown Waikiki
|A more touristy area of Waikiki beach!|
|Byodo Buddhist Temple - about an hour from Waikiki.|
A peaceful place. Note also the mountains in the distance.
|The Buddha inside of the Buddhist temple.|
|Much Japanese influence in the Honolulu area; and|
that extends to food. Delicious "Bento Boxes."
Oh, how I miss them.
|The Governor's Mansion -|
Good Sunday, Friends! Always nice to anticipate sharing poetry with you on Sunday. Today I am sharing some photos from my late August trip to Oahu, Hawaii. Primarily the Waikiki and Honolulu area. It was Paradise indeed!
Hope everyone took a look at Rosemary's new series Thought Provokers which began Friday. In her first article she uses a poem by Susan Hawthorne to write about 'why write poetry,' which also is the title of Hawthorne's poem!
On Monday, Sherry is revisiting one of our regular poets. Love reading these updates, finding out what is new in someone's life. Do return tomorrow to see.
Thanks to all of you who took part in Sumana's "Appreciation" prompt for Midweek Motif. We certainly appreciate each one of you.
Next week for Midweek Motif Susan's very timely (and seasonal) prompt is Equinox / Equator! (Sigh, in the Northern Hemisphere, it will soon be fall, but I know our friends in the Southern Hemisphere look forward to spring!) As we pass the date of equal day and night again, we are challenged to think about it in new ways.
With no further delay, let's share poetry. Link your poem below. Say hello in comments. Visit others who link. See you on the trail!
