Poetry Pantry #321

This is a statue of Duke Kahanamoku
which stands on Kuhio Beach. Duke
is a Hawaiian hero and the father
of modern surfing!  Google him
if you want to learn more about this
interesting man.

This is a Banyan tree.  The only
place I have seen them is Hawaii.
Aren't they cool?

We didn't spend ALL of our time at Waikiki.
We also took a tour of the 'north shore.' Truly,
there are some magnificent beaches &
beautiful scenery all along the coast.

The USS Arizona Memorial is located
at Pearl Harbor.  It marks the resting
place of 1102 of the  1177 sailors and
marines killed on the USS Arizona,
December 7, 1945

This is inside the Arizona Memorial.  These are
the names of those who died on December 7, 1945.
At the bottom of the list are people who were
stationed on the Arizona who died later & whose
body was brought to be buried with other shipmates.

And the flag still flies over the Arizona Memorial!

This was written on the wall of the
Hawaii State Art Museum.  I think it can
apply to other places in our world as well,
don't you?

This is part of the Hawaii State Art Museum.  Ha,
it used to be a YMCA.  This USED to be a pool.
Now this is NOT a pool, and what you see is NOT water.

Greetings, Friends!  This is my second week of sharing Oahu, Hawaii, photos.  Last week I shared mostly Waikiki.  This time I shared a variety.  I hope you have found them interesting.  Oahu, Hawaii, is indeed Paradise!  Visit if you can.  You will not be disappointed.  But now I am asking YOU for photos.  I like scenery of places.  I also like it if you can write a bit about the photos that you share, as I have.  You have seen a variety of photographs here at Poetry Pantry.  If you have considered sharing your photos, perhaps NOW is the time.

Monday Sherry is featuring poems by THREE very participatory Poets United Poets,  You will recognize each of them! Please remember to stop by.

Wednesday Sumana will have have us write to the prompt "Two souls: caged and free."  Write either about a 'caged soul' or a 'free soul.'  Use your creative imagination, and I know you will come up with an intriguing poem.

With no delay, let's share poetry!  Link your poem below.  Stop into comments & say hello. Then visit others who have shared poetry.  Enjoy!

  10. Hello all.. I'm late passing through the pantry because I had to hand in a second draft for a short story I had to submit today...

  11. Sorry I won't be participating at all this time, as the installation of a new kitchen is taking all my time. But just had to pop in to say that Duke Kahanamoku is famous in Australia too, as he was the one who first introduced board surfing here.

  12. That's not water? How wild!

    I'm a little under weather, so I probably won't be around until tomorrow.
