Soaring Hawk - A Haiku Series

Soaring Hawk poised high Back drop a deep sapphire sky Winds in attendance Mighty wings unfold Caressing the Wind Spirits They lift and support Circling Hawk perceives Rainbow circle on a cloud Framed is his shadow On oceans of blue Snow hills of clouds seem to float On silvered ripples Waves swell as they curl White manes gracefully flow Rolling to the shore Higher still soars Hawk Wind Spirits on either side Carry him upwards Land and mountains meld Lofty mountains crown the land Great aspirations Hawk gracefully glides Towards the shore he observes His island in bloom Festooned in colour Hibiscus - Red, Gold and Pink In leafy bouquets Flowers - Pale yellow Their sweet perfume exuding Riding on the Winds Romance in the air Couples hold hands and frolic An Island in love Hawaiian Hawk proud Sees everything - land and sea Paradise Island Wind voices whisper Of Rebirth, Growth and Culture Hawaii has heard
Footnote: We recently visited Hawaii, one of our favorite holiday destinations, once again we were carried away with the ambience and peacefulness of this Island Paradise. The inspiration came while viewing the breath taking panorama from the 16th floor of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach ResortThe Waikiki beach, the beautiful gardens and the mountains all formed the pictureBut we needed a story and the Spirit legends supplied the theme All this came together and composed on the aircraft on our way back home to Australia. I have tried to capture and share some of the essence which is the Spirit of this beautiful island, its rebirth of culture that’s embroidered in the legends of a traditional Hula dance The Red Hibiscus (koki'o'ula) is the flower of the big island, while the Gold flower mentioned - The vibrant, sunshine-hued Yellow Hibiscus (ma'o hau hele) is Hawaii's official National flowerIn Hawaiian culture, Hibiscus is a symbol of old royalty & communicates power and respect The Hawk Kaha Ka ‘lo - the highest Chiefs where often called ‘lo – ‘Hawk with eyes that can see everywhere’ Ku Makani ‘Rising Wind’ has a position of power grace and motion. Ka Leo O Haukine ‘The voice of the Wind’, is so named. The two Winds according to the legend, are the voices of ancestors who listen and speak through the windsTogether they are the Spirits that uplift the mighty ‘Lo – The Hawaiian hawk. Some of the imagery described is seen from the aircraft as it would be seen through the eyes of the Hawaiian Hawk The circular rainbow, for those who have not been fortunate to have witnessed this rare phenomenon, it actually does exist.

Last Minute

                                                 Breezing through hectic
                                              Missed the soupers already
                                                    Wait until I'm done 

                                                Lack of sleep, struggling
                                              Gaze on a book fell asleep
                                                  Can't wait for an end

                                                     Holiday hear me!
                                                   I lean on you already
                                             Startled my day by your gift

Real Humanity

We can also feel
That our happy summer life
Is a holiday of something real!

in silence
the shire plods his path
in footsteps of the past

Note: On holiday recently,we took a trip by canal barge pulled this way.Very evocative for me, as on my mother's side,her forbears were canal people,and thats how they happened to arrive here in my hometown.

Flags at half staff flown


             flags at half staff flown

                               Silent crosses bare wittness....

                                                    "Taps" and freedom join

Poem Details | by Leon Enriquez |
Categories: angst,


Change sweeps along
Trading places;
Upsetting old routines

Coming back home
From another world;
Fine tune what's new normal

Old routines confront
Hostile takeover;
Awkward adjustments

New messages
Cluster of tired demands;
Who can go back?

Memoirs of journeys
On-the-road feelings;
Post holiday blues

Itchy cough
Climate change;
Seasonal affliction

From hot and humid
Cold and dry winds;
Difficult breathing

Once upon a tour
Back home recovery;
Disturbing sensations

Normalcy presides
Tour over in days;
Settling into vague routines

Yes you missed us
Yes we missed you;
Missing is leaning

There comes a time
When rhymes don't match;
Persuasion floods contempt

Redolent oak tree
Sweetens air with scent freshness

Holiday Greetings!

Lovers of cars, Papas sitting in the bars -
Somebody think how not to drink: milk holiday greetings
For driver meetings!
