Maui Revelation

— Lesa Medley

Standing at the edge of the world
my bare feet plunge into warm, wet sand
I wiggle my toes and smile
Taking in a deep breath
of plumeria perfumed air, I sigh
and whisper softly,
Aloha! Mahalo!
Around me palm trees are swaying
almost dancing
in the gentle breeze of trade winds
Out in the distance, a white sail shimmers
like a diamond in sunlight
against the deep sapphire blue of the ocean
I back up a few steps as a wave rolls in
sending the warm water up to my knees and I am hit
with a stinging spray of mist on my face
I slowly run my tongue across my lips
savoring the raw saltiness of the sea
I sigh again and realize…
I will search no more.
