Hawaiian time
Beach time
Sun the only clock
percussion beat
wave after wave.
Same day replayed
Sand, shade tree, and sea
broken only by sunrise
and sunset moments. 

Hawaiian time
to contemplate
to be one with the breeze
blowing mauka*
Hang loose
and Ho’onualu* on.

*”Mauka” Hawaiian for toward land. “Malia” is toward ocean.
*”Hon’onualu” means flow like a wave
