the Quest for Lilikoi
(re-written by yours truly)


The turtle and the scorpion were standed on kauai
the scorpion said to the turtle:

"Let us swim to molokai for lilikoi
I'll ride on your back since I cannot swim..."

the turtle to the scorpion,"You will sting and kill me-"

scorpion in retaliation,

"No, why would I do that? We will both drown."

the turtle merely thinking momentarily,

"That is true, and then we both won't have any lilikoi..."

the scorpion settles comfortably on top of the turtle's shell
kind and almighty

as turtle swims pass honolulu shore suddenly shrieking in strife!
gasping his last words above air-

"Scorpion, you have stung me in betrayal!
Why? Now we both shall perish."

the scorpion pathologically speaking,

"I am sorry, my beloved turtle-.
For it is in my nature."

the scorpion sinks to the bottom of its sea dwell interstellar.
as for the turtle?


You can find his spirit at Hono Bay Lilikoi

with love for


anton viktor yelchin

sometimes you return to
immortal youth when eyes are still open
blue as ever greenly
a smile so pale and crescent
your soul-space invigorating mine

you
full of awe
full of curiousity
full fear none
at heart
you
ginormous hair
still trying to tame!


upon a boy rose a man
will always remain sacred

holding onto heaven
holding onto you

gone is too

soon

I know the song of how a true bird sings

September Summer

I see you run against your wind
the fast runner running away from
his lost dream towards the
dark shadows of your internal black sea dive

you are my gold red sienna
that blows into the night
you are the little owl in the full moonlight
you belong to no one and
you are all mine in the sun of suns
I will see you run again
into my gold red sienna
come tomorrow come
into my Autumn red light

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.

The Waking

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear
I learn by going where I have to go

We think by feeling. What is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow

Of those so close beside me, which are you?
God bless the Ground! I shall walk softly there
And learn by going where I have to go

Light takes the Tree; but who can tell us how?
The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow

Great Nature has another thing to do
To you and me; so take the lively air
And, lovely, learn by going where to go

This shaking keeps me steady, I should know
What falls away is always. And is near
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow
I learn by going where I have to go

i thank You for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,

and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any - lifted from the no

of all nothing - human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
