Maui’s Manumit


to step off the plane
is being enveloped
involuntarily assimilated
into her sultry arms
robust, fragrant
trade winds scour
mugginess away, also
amble her beaches
attentive to surf’s rhythm
as it fades
sandy footprints, then
break off to heed
sol’s submerge in
watery horizons, as
winds slow, stars show, moreover
recognize the heart acquires
an utterly unique tranquility
peace, fashioned nowhere else
